Which of the Chelsea players are you looking forward to most in 2018?

Ariana Cloud, a Brazilian superstar who will become the first female to score a goal in a Champions League final, is one of many Chelsea stars hoping to become the next great sensation of their new stadium.

The 28-year-old, who is a product of the famous Bicentennial Club, made her Champions League debut for Chelsea against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, scoring a brace as the Blues overcame the Bundesliga giants to reach the quarter-finals.

Ariana has already scored twice in her first four games for Chelsea, but the midfielder is hoping to score more as she heads into the final.

“I’m looking forward as much as the next person, to score as many goals as possible,” she told Sky Sport Italia.

“I’m very happy to be here.

I have a lot of good memories here, it’s a special place and it’s such a special club, I’m really looking forward for this.”

To play in this stadium is so special.

To score a brace in the first four minutes of the game is unbelievable.

I’m so happy.

“Arias brace is just one of a number of goals she has already registered, and she has become a key figure in the squad as she has been named in the team for most of the season.

The Brazilian has scored eight goals in the Premier League, with eight of them coming against the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City.

The Brazil international has scored nine goals in 12 Champions League appearances, with three coming in the competition.

Chelsea have been linked with a move for the midfielder this summer, and they may have to wait a little longer to make a move.

According to Sky Sport it is not yet known when Chelsea will officially announce the signing of Brazilian striker Luiz Gustavo, who has signed a five-year deal with the Blues.

A number of top clubs are also in the hunt for a deal for the Brazilian, who would cost around €60m.

Chelsea are also yet to confirm the signing or the details of a £15m deal for Southampton striker Romelu Lukaku, who will move to Anfield on a season-long loan deal.
