Chelsea new boy Alvaro Morata has admitted that when he was little he was inspired by the likes of Didier Drogba and company at Stamford Bridge.

10 Stars Who Have Worn The No. 9 Jersey At Chelsea

The Spanish international signed a five-year-deal with the 2016/17 Premier League champions last week after completing a £67 million (R1.1 billion) transfer from Real Madrid.

The 24-year-old has now told the Blues' official television station that he used to follow the side closely when he was a youngster and that he was inspired by the likes of Drogba, Andriy Shevchenko and fellow countryman Fernando Torres.

"When I was little I watched with my dad and it is incredible, a lot of goals and fast matches, and I really want to play here," Morata said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

"When I was little I saw Didier Drogba, Andriy Shevchenko, Fernando Torres and then I thought probably in a few years I will take this place, and now it is the dream to take the Chelsea No. 9 shirt. I can't wait to play at Stamford Bridge and in the Premier League."

I only like that most of his goals were scored through hard-work and dedication not from a penalty spot like one Lacazatte... Please end the curse on that number 9 jersey. We wanna forget Falcao and co.
