Spain striker Fernando Torres believes he can finally fulfil his dream of winning the Champions League after completing his move to Chelsea from Liverpool.

The 26-year-old - a Euro 2008 and World Cup winner - sealed his switch to Stamford Bridge on a five-and-a-half-year contract for a British record fee shortly before the transfer deadline, and is now delighted to call himself a Chelsea player.

"It's the kind of team I like to play against. It's the kind of team I want to play for," he told Chelsea TV. "It's my dream to win the Champions League and I'm sure I can, playing for Chelsea. I think all my team-mates share that dream with me and hopefully we can."

"It's always very tough to play against Chelsea - one of the biggest teams in Europe, always fighting for everything.




 

"This is the target for every footballer - to try to play for one of the top clubs in the world and I can do it now. I have to be very, very happy as I am."

Torres is relishing the responsibility of testing himself alongside Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka, rating the Ivory Coast forward "the best striker in the world by far".

The former Atletico Madrid forward said: "I am a big fan of all of the Chelsea strikers.

"When I was very young I remember Anelka was playing for Arsenal. It's the kind of football I like to play.

"Obviously Drogba is the best striker in the world by far. It's a big responsibility for me to play alongside them because the level they have is so high."
