The Spanish forward has been out of form since his move from Liverpool midway through the 2010/11 season.
It wasn't until this January window that Chelsea went some way to providing him competition in the form of Demba Ba.

With the club heading toward the end of a mostly disappointing season, it's clear the forward position will need some revamping ahead of next year.
Here are five possible replacements for Fernando Torres.
