His previous side Newcastle are now 12/1 to be relegated to the championship following his departure.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes told betrescue.com: “Chelsea have got their man and we fear a rejuvenated Torres could easily outscore his replacement Suarez in what’s left of this season. Despite Carroll’s current injury it wouldn’t surprise us if once fit he continues to find the net as regularly as he did with his old club.”
