The 21-year-old former Internacional star has impressed in his first six months at Stamford Bridge, scoring nine goals so far, including a late winner in last week’s Europa League first leg against Sparta Prague.

“I’m very happy and we are enjoying it more and more day by day, my wife and family,” the 21-year-old told Chelsea’s official website.

“Everybody is happy here and we are getting to know London a little bit more.

“I take English classes and it is improving all the time, so in two or three months I think I will speak more and I can already understand some.

“I’m very happy in spite of the cold!”

On his hopes for the rest of the season, Oscar added: “Also I am adapting to playing in England and the Premier League all the time.

“I think I’m playing well and now I’m starting games more often I feel like I’m doing well.

“I hope I can continue to do this as it helps my improvement, and I want to help Chelsea win games, competitions and titles.’
