New arrival Djorde Petrovic wants to follow in the footsteps of Branislav Ivanovic and Nemanja Matic at CHELSEA .
The club have been eyeing up the stopper for the last couple of weeks after the decision was made to allow Kepa depart the club and make a loan move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
We only signed Robert Sanchez just a few weeks ago – but Mauricio Pochettino was keen to get another goalkeeper in that will challenge the former Brighton man – and Petrovic is the player that has been found.
And after sealing his move to Stamford Bridge – Petrovic has opened up and says he is keen to replicate his fellow countrymen by representing the Blues in the Premier League.
He said: “I grew up watching a lot of Premier League football so it really is a dream for me to be here now. I love the intensity of the league and the passion shown by the supporters.
“I know a lot about CHELSEA . I remember watching Drogba but, as a Serbian, I liked to watch players like Ivanovic and Matic.
“I’m the next Serbian to play here and I want to achieve many good things at Chelsea like they did!”
Petrovic is a solid enough stopper that will not set the world alight – coming from the MLS to the Premier League is a massive step up and we are just hoping that he is able to deal with the pressure and the quality of the Premier League.
This was definitely an interesting signing from the club
