Mateo Kovacic completed a permanent move to Chelsea this summer after spending last season on loan from Real Madrid.

Despite making 51 appearances for Chelsea last season, Kovacic failed to score for the Blues, compared to Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who scored 10 goals despite playing less.

Kovacic’s last strike came on January 29, 2017 in Real Madrid’s 3-0 win over Real Sociedad.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is the club’s record goalscorer with 211 goals and Kovacic has admitted he’s looking forward to learning how to score from Lampard.

Kovacic said: “I’m looking forward to working with [Lampard] a lot – he was an amazing player and he showed last season that he is a good coach as well.

“I’m looking forward to learning how to score from him because he scored quite a lot and me not so much last season.

“I’m maybe not exactly the same type of midfielder as he was but he had some strong abilities, especially scoring goals.

“He was a hard worker so I’m looking forward to being better in this aspect, in working hard, fighting on the pitch and scoring goals.”
