Chelsea manager has expressed his delight in new boy Matteo Kovacic ahead of the Blues match against Arsenal this evening. Speaking to reporters Sarri admitted that Kovacic is a great player with unique qualities. He talked about the player’s cultured style of play and admitted that Kovacic could play 30 minutes in the game against Arsenal

Kovacic arrived Chelsea on a season-long loan from Madrid on transfer deadline after expressing dissatisfaction in lack of first-team opportunities in Spain.  Sarri also talked about Kovacic versatility as an asset for the club as he can play in all the positions in the midfield.

Kovacic is an excellent signing for the Blues but would have to hit the gas running quickly in a position filled with competition. Kovacic is among the 4 players including Drinkwater, Fabregas, Loftus-Cheek and Barkley vying for the last midfield spot alongside Kante and Jorginho.

The Madrid international has all the qualities to become a world-class player with nice close control,dribbling abilities and an eye for a pass. He would be wanting to follow the steps of fellow Croatian Luka Modric who lighted up the league during his time with Spurs.

Kovacic could be in line for his debut tonight against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
