Versatile Chelsea forward Andre Scurrle reveals where he feels his best position is following his move from Bayer Leverkusen.

New Chelsea signing Andre Schurrle has revealed that he feels his best position is wide left of an attacking trio.

The versatile Schurrle became the Blues' first signing of the summer when he put pen to paper on five-year contract on Tuesday and then later gave his opinion on where he feels he operates best.

"In attack I can play in every position, but I think wide on the left is my best position because I can cut inside and score goals with my right foot," Schurrle told the club's official website.

"I hope to be able to [that] do here, but I am confident playing anywhere offensively. Of course, [Juan Mata, Oscar and Eden Hazard] are all great players, very young with lots of quality. It was my dream to train every day with such talented players so I'm very much looking forward to it.

"I think we have a great team with some very talented young players. We can all improve ourselves, and under Jose Mourinho I'm confident we can have a really great season."

The 22-year-old arrives at Stamford Bridge for a reported £18m.
