I'm ready to face Arsenal in Europa League - Richmond Boakye-Yiadom

Red Star Belgrade striker Richmond Boakye has declared he is ready to play for English giants Chelsea.

The Ghana international is being scouted by Chelsea this season - and hopes to impress tomorrow night against Arsenal at the Emirates.

Ahead of their Europa League clash, Boakye admitted he was well aware of Chelsea's interest.

"I will go back to the Emirates if I deserve it, I would like to face (Petr) Cech again, because when you face such a goalkeeper, it has more weight, you remember it more and celebrate it more!" smiled the striker.

"I am playing well with Red Star, we'll see who will contact me. If I'm going to play Chelsea, then I'll go.

"I'm having fun and I'm playing at my best."

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte knows Boakye well from their time together at Juventus.
