New AC Milan striker Fernando Torres is hoping to help the club qualify for Europe this season after completing his two-year loan deal from Chelsea on Sunday.

Torres finally ended his nightmare spell at Stamford Bridge which started in January 2011 after he left Liverpool for £50million.

The 30-year-old only scored 20 goals in 110 Premier League appearances for Chelsea as he failed to deliver the same form he showed at Anfield.

He won the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup during his time at Stamford Bridge but he is now hoping to succeed at the San Siro in the next two years.

The former Atletico Madrid forward is hoping to kick-start his career once again in Italy and he admitted he couldn’t wait to get started in Serie A.

“When you play for Milan there are always big expectations,” he told Milan’s website.

“After a difficult season, all the players and the fans want to get back into the Champions League and fight for trophies.

“It will be a nice challenge trying to get back into the top-three in the league and subsequently have the chance to play in the Champions League next year.”

Dutch midfielder Marco van Ginkel is set to become the second Chelsea player to join Milan before the end of the window. The 21-year-old has agreed a season-long loan move after flying to Italy on Sunday night.

Milan are currently 15.00 to win the Serie A title with Dafabet but they will be up against it with Napoli, Juventus and Roma all looking strong during pre-season.
