Chelsea new boy Victory Moses says he dreams of one day playing for Catalan giants Barcelona.

The Nigerian international joined The Blues from Wigan Athletic during the summer, making his debut in Saturday's goalless draw with Queens Park Rangers.

Moses' move to Stamford Bridge marks another significant step on the footballing ladder for the winger, who escaped from his homeland as a child amid wide scale riots following the death of his parents, and having excelled in the Premier League the 21 year old has dreams for the top.

"It has been a long journey [from Nigeria] and I just want to keep strong and work hard for myself, whether it's football or not football," Moses said.

"I have to thank God for being where I am, it's like a dream come true and, if I keep working hard, who knows, I'll probably end up in Barcelona one day.

"I don't really know if it was Di Matteo [who were interested] or if it was the chairman or whoever but I knew that Chelsea were interested in me and that was it, really.

"For a club to come and get you, they are going to use you at some stage. I know that there are a lot of players at Chelsea but if I do get my chance, I just have to grab it."

Moses is among an exciting cluster of wingers brought in during the summer by Chelsea, who are looking to bridge the gap to Manchester City and Manchester United after their disappointing fifth place finish last season.

While their FA Cup and Champions League exploits helped to paper over their domestic troubles, manager Roberto Di Matteo will hope that the signings of Eden Hazard, Marko Marin and Oscar can translate into a challenge for the club's fourth Premier League title.

Chelsea dropped points for the first time this term against QPR, a game overshadowed by Anton Ferdinand's refusal to shake the hand of John Terry, who was cleared of racially abusing the defender in July.
