The Chelsea loanee has nothing but praise for the powerful attacker, and hopes to be playing alongside him at Stamford Bridge at some point in the future

Vitesse defender Tomas Kalas feels that Wilfried Bony would be the perfect signing for Chelsea as they currently lack an attacker with the Cote d'Ivoire international's qualities.
The Czech, one of three Chelsea players on loan at the club alongside Patrick van Aanholt and Gael Kakuta, is unsure whether Fernando Torres has the physical presence to lead the Blues' attack, and believes his team-mate would add something to the team that they currently lack.
The 23-year-old Bony has been in impressive form for Vitesse this term, netting 12 goals in 11 Eredivisie appearances, and his good performances have not gone unnoticed abroad.
"Chelsea need a player like him [Bony] at the moment. Torres is always moving and works hard, but he is not as strong as Wilfried. I'm sorry for Torres, but that's my personal opinion," Kalas told Goal.com.
"Bony has so much quality. It's incredible how strong he is and he's excellent on the ball, too. I can understand why he has been linked with Chelsea and other clubs.
"It will be impossible for Vitesse to hold on to him if he keeps this up. Perhaps we'll play together at Chelsea in the future. That would be great.
"We haven't spoken about a transfer yet, but it would be nice to play alongside him at Stamford Bridge in a while."
Bony was close to joining Aston Villa in the summer transfer window, but the move eventually fell through as the Premier League side failed to reach an agreement with Vitesse.
