News from Chelsea: Alvaro Morata reveals what "world class" Mateo Kovacic will offer

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata believes Mateo Kovacic is one of the best midfielders in the world and says his new teammate creativity will help him score more goals.

The couple were teammates at Real Madrid before Morata signed for the Blues last summer in a £ 58 million deal, and they were reunited after Kovacic arrived in West London with a loan of a week.

Morata is convinced that Croatian international can be an important player for Chelsea this season and bring some creativity to the team.

"He's a midfielder who's good at the ball, very technical," Morata told the club's official website. "He can break the lines with his quality, he can score goals and he has a lot of power in his legs.
