Di Santo excited about Chelsea move

Argentinian teenager Franco Di Santo is set for a move to Chelsea.

A £3.4million deal with Chilean club Audax Italiano has yet to be confirmed but the 18-year-old is already looking forward to training with his heroes.

Di Santo, who holds an Italian passport, has shone in Argentina's junior teams and said: "It is going to be a dream to be next to Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Andriy Shevchenko and Nicolas Anelka.

"I am going to watch how they play and if I am called on to be part of the team, I will give my maximum and do what I do best. I will fulfil whatever the manager Avram Grant requests of me.

"To be changing next to Drogba will be something out of another world."
