Alvaro Morata believes that Chelsea FC are “lucky” to have signed a midfielder of Jorginho’s quality this summer.

The Blues brought in the Brazil born Italy midfielder as their first summer signing last month as they moved quickly to start bolstering their new squad under new boss Maurizio Sarri.

Jorginho will be hoping to hold down a regular spot in the first team under Sarri next season as he bids to try and adapt to the rigours of English football as quickly as possible.

Morata, meanwhile, will also be hoping to impress new boss Sarri as the Spanish forward looks to try and secure a regular place in the first team at Stamford Bridge next season.

And the 25-year-old striker has admitted that he has been thrilled to see the Blues conclude a deal to bring Jorginho to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Goal, Morata said: “We are lucky.

“We’ve made a very good signing, because he’s a fantastic player, a fantastic guy and because Manchester City wanted him! It would have been very bad for us if City has taken him.

“He was one of the best signings of the last year for Chelsea because now, when we have the ball, he is the key.

“Jorginho and Cesc Fabregas with the ball are two of the best midfielders around.

“There are not too many midfields with this level with the ball – for the strikers it is fantastic.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC will be aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title next season as they bid to try and win the trophy next term.

The Blues opted to sack Antonio Conte last month after they finished in fifth place in the Premier League table and won the FA Cup under the Italian boss.
