Noni Madueke admits he hopes to form connection with 23-year-old Chelsea player

Noni Madueke has suggested he’s already looking forward to playing at Chelsea with Reece James.

Madueke, 20, was confirmed as Chelsea’s latest signing last night during what’s been a very busy January transfer window for the club so far.

The right winger, who likes to cut infield on his left foot, has arrived at Stamford Bridge from PSV Eindhoven in a £29million transfer.

He’s a London-born winger that has developed his game recently to great success in the Netherlands. He’ll now get the opportunity to impress in the Premier League, though.

Noni Madueke arrival

Chelsea’s newest recruit has already admitted there’s potential to combine with right-back James on the right-hand side of the pitch.

When discussing a potential linkup with James, Madueke told the club’s official website: “Hopefully we can have something cooking.”

A James-Madueke combination is something that Chelsea fans will want to see soon.

23-year-old James has developed into one of the very best full-backs around, so you can understand why any winger would want him behind them

With Madueke cutting inside on his preferred left foot, James should have plenty of room for trademark overlapping runs to deliver crosses.

Incidentally, James is back in training after his recent injury absence, but Potter has confirmed he won’t be involved on Saturday against Liverpool in the Premier League.

There’s definitely a theme emerging now with new Chelsea signings mentioning James, who would surely be an outstanding replacement for Cesar Azpilicueta when he vacates the captain’s armband.

It’s obvious how much James is rated by his peers and opponents, which is a credit to how dominant he can be on the pitch.

If he’s fit, he will really help transform Graham Potter’s line-up.
