Alvaro Morata: These are the Chelsea players I used to admire when I was little


Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata was full of praise for the Blues and says he is already looking forward to making his Premier League debut.

The Spaniard moved to Stamford Bridge to become manager Antonio Conte's fourth summer signing.

He says he was always fascinated by football in England as he grew up watching the likes of Didier Drogba, Andriy Shevchenko, Fernando Torres in TV.

"I was very happy when I arrived here and there were many supporters asking for my signature," he told Chelsea's official website.

"I am very happy because it is my first travel with Chelsea and I am so proud for the support.

"When I was little I watched with my dad [the Premier League] and it is incredible.

"A lot of goals and fast matches and I really want to play here.

"When I was little I saw Didier Drogba, Andriy Shevchenko, Fernando Torres and thought probably in a few years I will take this place, and now it is the dream to take the Chelsea number 9 shirt.

"I can't wait to play at Stamford Bridge and in the Premier League."
