Chelsea have completed their first post-Pochetino signing.

Chelsea FC have confirmed their first summer signing in Tosin Adarabioyo. This marks the start of a new Chelsea era with Enzo Maresca leading the Blues.

The 26-year-old's contract with Fulham ends in June, and now he's signed a new four-year deal with Chelsea.

Many big clubs, like Manchester United and Newcastle United, were interested in him, but he chose Chelsea. Last season, he played 25 games for Fulham.

Before this, he almost left Fulham last summer, with Tottenham Hotspur and Monaco interested, but no deal happened.

Tosin said he's always admired Chelsea and wants to win with them. He played 132 games for Fulham in four years and helped them win the Championship in 2021/22.

"I’m very excited and looking forward to helping push the club in the direction we want to go," he said.

He joined Fulham from Manchester City in 2020, where he didn't get many chances to play. Tosin is Chelsea's first signing under new head coach Enzo Maresca, who signed a long contract.

Maresca replaced Mauricio Pochettino, who left after one season. With Tosin joining, Chelsea might sell Trevoh Chalobah and Conor Gallagher, who's wanted by Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur.

Tosin's move to Chelsea marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter in his career. With his talent and determination, he has the potential to make a significant impact at Stamford Bridge.

As part of a club with a rich history of success, Tosin will have the opportunity to showcase his skills on the biggest stages and compete for major trophies.

Under the guidance of new head coach Enzo Maresca, he will have the chance to further develop and thrive in a competitive environment.

With his winning mentality and desire to succeed, Tosin's future with the Blues looks bright, and he has the potential to become a key figure in the club's pursuit of glory in the seasons to come.
