Anzhi are preparing a raid for Chelsea's in-form striker Fernando Torres.

The Daiy Mail says Torres is a target for the rich Russian club Anzhi.

The World Cup winner is starting to show the form that persuaded Roman Abramovich to pay Liverpool £50m for him in January 2011.

But whether Torres stays at Stamford Bridge next season remains to be seen — and Anzhi have earmarked the Spain striker as a summer arrival.
