“We talked a lot about things like the system, how he wants to play and sees me playing, and how the system fits me.


“He is a really nice guy who not only told me what he wants from me as a player because he wants to help me as a guy.


“He knows me now a little bit better and it fits very well between us and now I am happy to be here.”


The Striker also said he has to think about making the right move in embarking on a new challenge in his striker before he chose Chelsea

“I know of the players before when they won the Champions League with [Didier] Drogba, with my new manager Frank Lampard, Petr Cech as the technical advisor, it is like a little dream for me but I want to become, not the same player as them, but I want to be part of a new era here so I will try to give my best.


“The style of the Premier League is very fast and my speciality is that I am really fast so I think it is perfect for me to play here.


“It is another league in another country so I can improve myself and go to another level, so those are the reasons I came to the Premier League and to Chelsea.”
