London, Nov 21 (ANI): Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti will today give the club fans their first glimpse of Gael Kakuta whose signing could see the club banned from the transfer market for 18 months.
Blues' supporters will get the chance to see what the fuss was all about, as Ancelotti suggested Kakuta would become the new boy wonder of Stamford Bridge.
French ace Kakuta will be on the bench against Wolves for Ancelotti's injury-strapped side. Chelsea were handed a two-window transfer ban by FIFA after being found guilty in September of inducing Kakuta to break his contract with Lens.
That suspension is now on hold, pending the appeal hearing due for early next year, but Chelsea is braced for the punishment to be upheld, The Mirror reports.
Ancelotti said: "At his age, I have never seen a player with his talent and ability. He is very young and a quiet boy, and for the first week or two after the transfer ban he suffered.
"But then he calmed down and has trained with us and showed he can become a player who is part of the culture of the club."
"His character is good. Technically, he is fantastic - his left foot is very good. He is a No.10, like Deco or Joe Cole and yes, he is worth all the fuss and attention.
"Of course, he is not quite ready to start for the first team yet, because he is not as strong as he will be and he needs to improve his physical qualities. But technically he is ready to play and he is ready to come on for us in games now," Ancelotti added. (ANI)
