Brazilian defender Alex believes he can convince Jose Mourinho he is worthy of a place in his Chelsea side if he moves to Stamford Bridge this summer.
Chelsea reportedly paid £5million for Alex three years ago, but due to work permit issues the 24-year-old has spent the last three years on loan at PSV.
Despite Chelsea's lack of defensive options, however, Mourinho is rumoured to have reservations about Alex - but the Brazilian has no doubt he can win the Portuguese over.
"It is always complicated for a Brazilian player to come to England with the work permit situation, but the Chelsea directors have told me that they are convinced it is possible," he told the Daily Mirror.
"I have accepted Chelsea's offer and will join them.
"It will be an advantage if the coach wants me, but I have always been a fighter and I will convince him."
