I've been offered Torres, admits Ancelotti… but Tevez emerges as No 1 target for mega-rich PSG
Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that Paris St Germain have been offered Chelsea flop Fernando Torres – as they line up a swoop for Carlos Tevez.
The Blues striker has scored just five goals since his 50million arrival from Liverpool – and has even been booked in for extra shooting practice.
Under pressure: Fernando Torres has failed to shine for Chelsea
Sportsmail revealed last month that Chelsea were considering offloading the British record signing for a cut-price fee after just a year at Stamford Bridge.
And Ancelotti has claimed that the Spain international has been touted as a potential signing for his mega-rich French side.
The PSG boss said: 'There is a lot of choice for this January market. Do you want the names
'OK, now I tell you the players the agents are offering on the market, officially or not: Carlos Tevez, Fernando Torres, Dimitar Berbatov, Roman Pavlyuchenko, Edinson Cavani, Fernando Llorente.'
Whether Chelsea would take a huge loss on Torres remains to be seen, but Ancelotti's admission suggests he is under threat.
Eyes on the prize: Carlo Ancelotti is lining up a move for Carlos Tevez (right)
Ancelotti, who was the manager in charge when Torres arrived at the Bridge, is unlikely to be interested in linking up with him again.
But one man he is genuinely keen on is Tevez, who is on his way out of Manchester City.
Inter Milan are set to fail with their 21m bid for the Argentina striker – but PSG are able to pay more after their recent injection of Qatari cash.
It is believed Sheikh Tamim – who owns PSG – has even spoken directly to City chief Sheikh Mansour about a deal.
City are believed to be holding out for at least 30m for Tevez and the French side would be the leading contenders to stump up the money.
