Chelsea are concerned that £50 million striker Fernando Torres’ lack of form since his arrival from Liverpool back in January is due to homesickness, according to a report in the Daily Mirror.

Torres endured a difficult time on Merseyside after rejoining the Reds from a winning World Cup squad in the summer, but the Spanish hitman made way for a British record deal to Chelsea on transfer deadline-day.

Reports emerged in the final months of his Liverpool career that the Spaniard favoured a move back to his homeland although neither Real Madrid or Barcelona decided to register serious interest.

Torres has endured a torrid time at Stamford Bridge since his arrival and has failed to find the net in his opening five games as a Blues player.

The 26-year-old is reportedly still without a permanent residence in London and recently failed to acquire West Ham defender Wayne Bridge’s former house.
