Torres Ready For Competition

Chelsea forward Fernando Torres is not concerned about the club bringing in strikers this season.

Torres has struggled to hit his best since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Liverpool, though he did manage 23 goals in all competitions last term.

Reports have suggested that Chelsea are looking to continue spending this summer and the likes of Radamel Falcao have been linked with the club.

Asked if the possible arrival of new forwards was a concern, Torres told Goal: "No. It's Chelsea. Obviously, big players are linked with the club. It's normal, especially in this period of the year with the summer. The places and names of players that every year (are linked) - we'll see what happens."

Asked about his own performances towards the end of the season, he continued, "There's no doubt about it (that I showed improvement towards the end of the season).

"When the team improves and wins trophies, everyone individually improves. That's the case with this team, not just me. Many of the other players at the end of the season reached a very good level so that's building towards next season.

"As always, you need new players and a new challenge. Keep on playing together. Training and training together as much as we can. The team is going to improve; we have enough talent individually to win games."
