New Chelsea signing Andre Schurrle claims his best position is on the wide left of an attacking trio, behind the centre forward.

The Germany international became the Blues' first recruit this summer, when he put pen to paper on a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday. Two weeks ago, the club announced an agreement with Bayer Leverkusen for the 22-year-old's transfer and the west London outfit has now completed the deal, understood to be worth £18m.

Schurrle had 11 goals and seven assists to his name from 34 Bundesliga appearances last season. The forward, who will wear Chelsea's No 14 shirt next season, gave his opinion on which position he feels he will be most effective.

"In attack I can play in every position, but I think wide on the left is my best position because I can cut inside and score goals with my right foot, which I hope to be able to do here, but I am confident playing anywhere offensively," Schurrle told the club's official website.

"Of course, they [Juan Mata, Oscar and Eden Hazard] are all great players, very young with lots of quality. It was my dream to train every day with such talented players so I'm very much looking forward to it. I think we have a great team with some very talented young players. We can all improve ourselves, and under Jose Mourinho I'm confident we can have a really great season," the German stressed.

Schurrle has targeted winning titles with Chelsea next season and expects to play an important role in the squad.

"For this club, winning titles is always the main objective. We have a great young team with so much quality. We are capable of doing well in the Premier League, Champions League and the cup competitions as well, and I hope to play a big part," the player added.
