"Big players are always good signings. We know Cesc, he knows the division and was always among the top players when he was at Arsenal," Torres told Movistar.
"He likes to play good football and will offer ball control, cutting edge, goals. If he's made to feel important, like a leader - like when he was at Arsenal - he can drive the team on and he's a type of player Chelsea don't have right now."
Barcelona team-mate Gerard Pique has claimed that a deal for Fabregas to leave Camp Nou has already been done and Torres feels he is not fully appreciated by the the Catalan giants.
"Cesc is such a great player and he simply is not being valued at his level in Barca,” he added.
"In any other team he would be a regular starter. So it is a difficult situation for him, but he will resolve it and I hope he does so by remaining in Barcelona."
