Chelsea's Brazilian midfielder Oscar has played down reports linking him with a move away from Stamford Bridge, insisting he is happy with life at the Blues. 

The 22-year-old has been touted as a possible summer target for French giants PSG,who are rumoured to be keeping a close eye on the Chelsea playmaker. 

But Oscar insists his future lies in the Premier League, and wants to go on to replicate Didier Drogba's success at the club. 

"Didier (Drogba) was always an idol," he told the Daily Star Sunday.

"I'd watched him lots on the TV and then suddenly I was wearing the same Chelsea jersey he always wore. I feel very proud about that.

"But I am writing my own story. I have my own style and hopefully I will be able to have my own great story at Chelsea - just like he did."

Oscar arrived at the Bridge in 2012 after a move from Internacional for around £25m, and has gone on to become a regular for both club and country ahead of this summer's World Cup in his native Brazil. 

And despite a surprise 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace yesterday, Oscar believes praised the impact of Jose Mourinho, and the effect it has had on his career. 

"Jose (Mourinho) has shown me I can be one of the best. 

"The manager has given me this confidence and I have grown better and better under him. Now I just hope I can keep on getting better and win titles with him at the end of the season.

"The team is top of the Premier League and the manager has his own way of playing. He alternates quite a bit because we have a lot of games.

"But that's normal. I'm playing well at Chelsea and am in my prime right now." 

Chelsea's defeat at Selhurst Park has seen there title hopes fade, with Liverpool and Manchester City both looking to overtake them at the top of the Premier League with victory in their games in hand.
