While the goals came fast and furiously during Torres' time with Liverpool, the Spaniard's conversion rate since his move to Stamford Bridge has been largely unsatisfactory.
Torres has hit yet another barren run recently, scoring just once in the last six weeks, prompting rumours that Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo would drop him for the team's crunch Champions League game against Juventus.
Although appointed "false nine" Eden Hazard failed to get on the score-sheet during the match, Capello told the Daily Express that he was not surprised by Di Matteo's decision to omit Torres from the starting line-up of such an important fixture.
"Fernando Torres is slowly losing it," Capello stated.
"I don't know what is happening because he was very good when Rafael Benitez was the Liverpool manager. But he has not found inspiration [at Chelsea] and scored the goals that used to distinguish him."
The Champions League-winning manager went on to validate his view by pointing out that Torres could no longer find his way around opposition rear-guards.
"Before, he was unpredictable with Liverpool. But now defences manage to beat him for speed and this is worrying," Capello explained.
After their 3-0 loss to Juventus in their recent Champions League group game, Chelsea will return to domestic action this weekend with a mouth-watering clash against Manchester City.
