Torres tightrope! Striker feeling blue again ahead of Juve clash
Summer target: Chelsea were linked with a move for Falcao (right) through the summer

Comolli worked on his own rule of thumb that, with the exception of Ruud van Nistelrooy, strikers imported from Holland only score around a third of the goals in the Premier League.

Suarez scored 81 times in 110 appearances at Ajax; he has 17 in 48 appearances in the Premier League.

Dirk Kuyt scored 71 times in 98 appearances for Feyenoord; at Anfield, he scored 51 goals in 208 appearances.

So Comolli was excited about the prospect of re-signing Torres, but it was a transfer fraught with difficulties.

He expected the fee to be prohibitive and that Roman Abramovich would be an unwilling seller.

Comolli did not get the chance to pursue it, after he was fired without warning by Werner and Henry on April 12 this year, two days before the FA Cup semi-final with Everton.
