Croatian striker Stipe Perica arrived at Chelsea in August 2013, and was immediately sent on loan to Dutch side NAC Breda. He spent one-and-a-half year at the Eredivisie club, moving next to Serie A team Udinese in 2015 on a new multi-year loan that turned into a permanent transfer this summer.

The 21-year-old never had the chance to actually represent Chelsea during his time as a player on Chelsea's books, but he still hopes to have the chance of eventually doing so in the future.

"I learned a lot but skipped some steps which I am doing now. I do not regret anything. I was at a big club like Chelsea and I will do all to return one day to the Blues."

This season so far, Perica has played in 6 matches for Udinese, scoring 2 goals in the Italian league. Perhaps after scoring many more goals and getting more experience under his belt, he may attract Chelsea's interest once again and make his wish come true.

Good luck, Stipe!
