Alexandre Pato has stated he has a strong desire to remain at the club after his loan spell ends.
The Brazilian forward joined Chelsea on a loan deal, but has featured sparingly due to lack of fitness.
But the 26-year-old is adamant that he can prove his worth in Chelsea’s remaining fixtures.
“In every training session I was visualising what it would be like in a match. I never gave up and always wanted to train more,” Pato told ESPN Brasil.
“When Guus [Hiddink] gave me the chance to play I was very happy. Scoring that goal was a weight off my shoulders.
“I know that I still need more games to show my value.
“I feel that my body and mind are strong. My aim is to stay here in Europe and continue at Chelsea.”
The striker also backed incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, who will succeed Guus Hiddink after Italy’s Euro 2016 campaign.
“Conte will do very well here,” he said.
“He’s a guy who has a real desire to win. He revolutionised Juventus, winning a lot. I am sure that it will be the same here.
“He will sign the players Chelsea need.”
