'Chelsea have signed one of the best players in the world', declares German international

Andre Schurrle says he cannot wait to play alongside Chelsea's new signings.

Chelsea star Andre Schurrle has praised the club's new signings, and believes each of them are a perfect fit for the club.

The World Cup winner is full of confidence after Germany's dramatic victory in Brazil, and is eyeing more silverware for his club.

The addition of four signings so far this summer has him purring about what can be achieved, and says by acquiring Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona, they have one of the very best.

He told Chelsea's website: "They’re all world-class players, Drogba’s back with his club and Fabregas is one of the best players in the world.

"We played against Filipe Luis last season when he was with Atletico and he did very well. I saw Diego Costa’s goal against Olimpija Lubjlana and it was a great finish, so I’m looking forward to playing with all of them, they all have great quality."

None of the players are direct competitors for Schurrle's position, but they do drive the overall standard up of the side, and will inspire him to raise him game in training and in matches.

Schurrle was by no means a regular pick for Chelsea at all last season, playing well in flashes, and then spending time on the bench for large periods.

This saw him well prepared for Germany's role of super-sub at the World Cup, where he provided the final winning assist, but his experiences there will only push him onto want to be more involved for the Blues amid their silverware tilt.
