Jacopo Sala is delighted with his progress at Chelsea.

The 18 year-old midfielder came through the system at Atalanta and admits he's delighted Carlo Ancelotti has arrived at Chelsea this season.

"I can play in several positions," said Sala. "I like to participate in the attack as often as I can.

"I met Ancelotti when I trained with the players from the first team. He's a great coach and is serious about his commitment to the youth at Chelsea, which makes me extremely pleased.

"My wish is to find a place in the first team at Chelsea. It is the goal I've set myself."
