Cesc Fabregas raves about 'immense' £32 million Chelsea striker... and Torres

Cesc Fabregas says he cannot wait to play with Chelsea's Spanish strikers.

Cesc Fabregas has been speaking enthusastically about another of Chelsea's big summer signings.

A new addition to the club himself, Fabregas believes Diego Costa will be an outstanding asset to Jose Mourinho's side.

He told Chelsea's website: "Diego has been progressing immensely in the last couple of years.

"He is a real threat in every single game; last season he was playing every three days and he was consistently giving really strong performances.

"He goes behind the defence and he makes the kind of runs players like me really like because it gives you an option to play the killer ball. I think he will do superbly here."

In La Liga alone last season, Cesc provided 13 assists, while Costa scored 27 goals. Fabregas even added eight strikes from midfield himself.

It's an outstanding double signing, which for £60 million combined, compares very favourably against Manchester United who spent the same money on unproven Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw.

Fabregas added that there is one other striker at the club he is particularly fond of, knowing him well from the international set up. 

He said of Fernando Torres: "I really like playing with him. He’s really strong, he goes behind defenders and his movement off the ball is superb. I’m sure we’ll have a good partnership together."

The squad Jose Mourinho is assembling for next season is already looking daunting for their rivals to match up against, and if Costa delivers on Cesc's hype - the Blues will surely be in with a chance of winning the title right up to the wire, if they have not run away with it already by then.
