While a target for Manchester United, the England international admits he modeled much of his game on two Blues icons.
"Ronaldinho was the main guy I used to watch on YouTube," he told The Independent.
He continued: "It was all about learning skills and expressing myself.
"I like adapting that to a real game. It makes defending harder because opponents don't think you have those sort of skills.
"It gives you an advantage against some players and luckily enough it's been working out for me."
