Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has admitted for the first time that he would like to have Liverpool striker Fernando Torres at the club.

The Blues boss had previously stated that there would be no room for the Spaniard at Stamford Bridge with Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka up front but has reneged on that and now agrees with Drogba that he would be a good fit for the Premiers although he did admit a deal was unlikely at this stage.

"It's not only Drogba - I would like to play with Torres. He's a very good player,” Ancelotti said.

"But this is not an issue for now. He is a Liverpool player and is a good striker but we have two fantastic strikers and this is not for this moment."
