Chelsea crisis: Blues player attacks Torres

Bony is considered to be Dutch football's hottest property

Life at Stamford Bridge can't get any better or worse for the misfiring Fernando Torres who triggered a storm for the wrong reasons last week.

Not for scoring a spectacular but for being sent off after a second bookable offence against Manchester United although referee Mark Clattenburg was widely criticised for judging that he had dived after being tripped by Jonny Evans.

Nine-man Chelsea suffered a 3-2 defeat as a result and when he returned for the League clash against Swansea after missing the return against Manchester United which the Blues won, they were spared the blushes by a Victor Moses strike with Torres being a mere spectator.

One of Chelsea's fringe players has urged the club to dump Torres and move for Wilfried Bony, considered to be Dutch football's hottest property, according to the Daily Mail (

Unlike Torres, Vitesse forward Bony bagged both goals as they beat defending Eredivisie champions Ajax in Amsterdam.

So much so that he has drawn comparisons with former Chelsea star Didier Drogba.

Tomas Kalas, who is on loan at Vitesse Arnhem from Stamford Bridge, claims his parent club should move for the Ivorian if they are looking for a more reliable man to lead the line.

Speaking to, the 19-year-old Czech, said: "Chelsea need a player like Wilifried Bony at the moment. Torres is always moving and works hard, but he is not strong enough to lead the line. I'm sorry for Torres, but that's my personal opinion.

"Bony has so much quality. It's incredible how strong he is and he's excellent on the ball, too. I can understand why he has been linked with Chelsea and other clubs.

"It will be impossible for Vitesse to hold on to him if he keeps this up. Perhaps we'll play together at Chelsea in the future. That would be great.

"We haven't spoken about a transfer yet, but it would be nice to play alongside him at Stamford Bridge in a while."

Earlier, Swansea defender Garry Monk branded Chelsea's £50 million man overpriced.
