Samuel Eto'o looking 'very sharp and hungry' at Chelsea FC - John Terry

John Terry has hailed the arrival of Samuel Eto'o at Chelsea, insisting the striker looks "very sharp and hungry".

Eto'o, 32, recently signed a one-year contract with Chelsea, with the Cameroon international joining the Blues from Anzhi Makhachkala last month.

And Terry is confident that Eto'o, who faces competition from the likes of Fernando Torres and Demba Ba for a place in Jose Mourinho's starting line-up, will be a success in the Premier League.

"He's looked really sharp in training so far, and so has Willian," the Blues captain told the club's official website.

"You speak to them and they talk about how the intensity of their training [at Anzhi Makhachkala] is a lot different to how it is here, so for sure it will take them a few weeks to get their full fitness, but once they do they'll both look very good.

"I said to [Eto'o'] 'Thank God you're here' because I've had so many battles against him. He's such a threat, he's obviously a few years older but he still looks very sharp and hungry. He's got an eye for goal and I think he'll be a good addition, he was welcomed straight into the squad."
