While Bolton have benefited from the goalscoring talents of Daniel Sturridge in recent months, Chelsea will reap the rewards in the long-term.

The 21-year-old found the net four times in his first four appearances for the Trotters after a January loan move from Stamford Bridge and further demonstrated his talents by scoring for Stuart Pearce's Young Lions against Denmark last week.

Although still only at the start of his career, Sturridge has perhaps taken longer than some expected to begin realising the potential his showed as a teenager at Manchester City.

But the striker now looks set for a big future in the game and Chelsea sporting director Frank Arnesen believes he has what it takes to be a star at Stamford Bridge.

"Daniel is a big talent with huge potential," Arnesen said.


"He had shown a lot of progression this season. I see a lot of training and you could see the progress there because when you are training at Chelsea you are against some of the best centre-backs in the world, and you see him getting better and better.

"But there is a lot competition here for a place in attack and it was the right move for Daniel to go out on loan. He is doing very well for Bolton and it is all to do with the preparation he has done himself before he went there.

"He has done a lot of good work and he is not only scoring but also playing very well. That is very important because he is seeing himself that he can do it at Premier League level.

"Absolutely he is a goalscorer. He doesn't need a lot of chances and he arrives in good positions."
