Lampard hoping his new Chelsea team-mate Oscar can quickly adapt to the Premier League
Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard admits he does not know much the club's new signing Oscar, but hopes the Brazilian can make an immediate impact in the English Premier League.
The 20-year-old playmaker, who is in his country's Olympic squad, joined the Blues from Internacional on Wednesday in a deal reported to be worth £25 million.
''Oscar, to be honest, I don't know too much about,'' Lampard told reporters. ''All of the reports that I'm hearing is that he's very good. That he's a fantastic talent.
''Our Brazilian players think he's a great talent. It's a great signing for Chelsea, now and for the future. I hope that he can come and adapt to the English game very fast.''
