Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has agreed terms on a two-year deal with AC Milan, according to the Express.

The Spain international has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge ever since his international teammate Diego Costa arrived at Stamford Bridge in the summer, while Milan have been on the lookout for a replacement for Mario Balotelli, who finalised his move to Liverpool earlier in the week.

The two sides are now negotiating a severance pay which will allow Torres to be released from his contract, with a move likely to be finalised ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline.

The 30 year old has struggled to recreate the form he displayed at Liverpool since swapping Merseyside for London in January 2011, scoring just twenty goals in one hundred and ten Premier League outings for the Blues.

He has however chipped in with another twenty-five goals in other competitions on route to lifting the FA Cup, Europa League and Champions League.
