Arsenal legend Wright: Chelsea MUST sell Torres - for his sake

Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Chelsea must sell Fernando Torres at the end of the season.

Wrighty is not convinced Torres will ever return to being the feared hitman he once was at Liverpool.

The Arsenal legend told The Sun: "I think Chelsea have been very, very patient with him.

"When you see the amount of chances he had against Sparta Prague on Thursday, you just wonder what's happened.

"For me, it's like that film Space Jam when someone has come along and nicked his talent!

"With some of the chances he's missing, you have to ask yourself what's gone wrong. At Liverpool, he was absolutely frightening. But at Chelsea, he's not even a shadow of himself.

"It's sad to see one of the greats - who was a proper, proper forward - go through this.

"He's definitely unselfish with his play, but when you pay £50m for a striker you're not paying for him to set other people up."
