London, May 14 (ANI): Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has admitted for the first time that he would like to see Liverpool striker Fernando Torres playing for them.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is willing to give 50 million pounds needed for Torres and Blues striker Didier Drogba is also keen to link up with the Spanish ace.

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

Ancelotti is on the brink of winning a second trophy in his maiden season, The Sun reports.

He praised the work of Portsmouth manager Avram Grant, while admitting that Chelsea's victory at Fratton Park two months ago was the turning point of their season.

"That game was an important game for us because it was a difficult moment. At the time they didn't have much motivation but, on Saturday, they have a lot of motivation in the final," Ancelotti said.

"Avram is a very good coach. He was here in Chelsea for one year and did a very good job. And also this year, Portsmouth have had a difficult year but he did well to take them to the final and et his players to go out with strong, strong motivation," he added. (ANI)
