Chelsea have added another player to their ranks so what do their fans think?
The 33-year-old was previously at Italian club Perugia, where he made just one senior appearance, and before that he played 41 matches in a four-year spell at AC Milan.
Amelia’s most successful stint in terms of games played was at Livorno, where he featured 178 times, keeping 54 clean sheets in the process.
Amelia arrives to act as cover for Asmir Begovic following the injury suffered by Chelsea’s first-choice stopper Thibaut Courtois.
Amelia will wear the number 33 shirt at Chelsea but it remains to be seen if he will ever be anything more than a substitute, which is probably exactly what Blues boss Jose Mourinho is hoping.
Following the news we took to Twitter to see what Chelsea fans thought of Amelia’s arrival and you can read a selection of what we found below:
