Torres and Taarabt transfer talk

Barcelona and Real Madrid have ruled out buying Fernando Torres from Chelsea, according to the Daily Mail.

They say both clubs were sounded out about signing the Spaniard but were not interested.

The Independent claim Torres will not be sold in January but may be offloaded at the end of the season if his form does not improve.

And the Daily Star say Chelsea are are preparing a £30m offer for Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain.

The Mail suggest Italian club Napoli are interested in QPR duo Alejandro Faurlin and Adel Taarabt.

Picking up on recent comments by both Faurlin’s agent and Rangers’ former European scout the paper suggests a double raid is being planned.
