London - Former AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato arrived for a medical at Chelsea on Wednesday with the Brazilian international expected to sign a loan deal until the end of the season.

Pato helped AC Milan to the 2011 Italian league title as part of an attacking trident alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho.

He also won a silver medal at the London Olympics in 2012.

With Chelsea looking to sharpen their attacking back up to Diego Costa, the 26-year-old Corinthians player was in confident mood.

"I am so happy -- Chelsea is my new home," Pato stold Sky Sports News.

"Thanks Chelsea for the support and thanks for my fans. I need to play. I don't know what to say because I am so happy. I am very anxious. I want to know my new friends, the new players, and the team. I really want to play for Chelsea.
