Loftus-Cheek beams over Chelsea signing Batshuayi - 'He is fast, powerful'

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has hailed Chelsea's new signing Michy Batshuayi.

Chelsea splashed a whopping £33million to secure the services of Batshuayi from Marseille this summer and given his huge price tag, there will understandably be a lot of expectation for the Belgian international to do well.

Batshuayi certainly seems to have made a positive impression on his teammates so far and young midfielder Loftus-Cheek has gone on to praise the qualities of the 'powerful' 22-year-old.

"We have all met him and welcomed him, he looks good in training," Loftus-Cheek told Goal.

"He is quite powerful and it will be good to play with him and see what he can do.

"We will have to see what happens in the game, I am sure we will link up well. We are doing tactics in training, trying to get used to the movements so I think he will be good.

"I watched the Euros and he really does look good. He is fast, powerful and can head the ball so we are lucky to have him."
