Brasilia - Nigeria international John Obi Mikel insists he is not threatened by the arrival of Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas at Chelsea.
The Super Eagles anchorman started just 11 Premier League matches last season, with Ramires, David Luiz and Nemanja Matic proving to be stiff competition.
However, he maintains that he is comfortable with the addition of another top midfielder to the Blues squad.
"I don't have a problem with the signing of Cesc Fabregas," Mikel told reporters in Brazil, where his national team are preparing for a tough test against France in the World Cup last-16.
"We have played against each other a lot of times. We don't play in the same position anyway."
He added that he has not considered leaving Stamford Bridge despite the increased competition for places at the ambitious club.
"Chelsea are my home away from home, my second home," the 27-year-old explained. "You never know what's going to happen in football, but I'm very happy at Chelsea and I want to remain at Chelsea.
"I still have three years left on my contract and want to stay there. I want to congratulate Cesc with his transfer and I'm looking forward to playing with him."
Fabregas joined the London outfit from Barcelona to become the Blues' first signing of the off-season transfer period, with Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa lined up as another major coup.
