JORGINHO believes Romelu Lukaku has arrived at Chelsea armed with the qualities to become a huge hit.
Italian midfielder Jorginho revealed his international team-mates tipped him off about the striker’s attributes long before he signed.

Lukaku’s 30 goals for Inter Milan last season helped them win the Serie A title.
And he has picked up straightaway by scoring four in four for Chelsea since a £97.5million move.
Jorginho said: “They said that he works a lot, he can help a lot, he tries to talk, he works hard.
“We are really happy that he is really helping everyone.
“That’s what everyone does here, we try to help each other — and he came with the right mentality, working and trying to help.
“So I’m really happy for him as well because he works so hard during training and deserves every goal. A big impact is well deserved.”

Defender Antonio Rudiger said of the Belgian hitman: “He is a striker of great class.
“He has a big personality but what is more important is the team, not only one player.
“Of course, to have a great player like him is very good but the reason we won the Champions League last year is we did it as a team.”
