Benfica have announced they have agreed a deal to sell defender David Luiz to Chelsea.
Reports suggest that an initial £21million deal has been agreed, with Chelsea set to pay £17m of the fee up front.
The Brazilian has penned a five-and-half-year contract at Stamford Bridge and admits he is excited by the challenges posed by life in the Premier League.
He told the Blues' official website: "I am delighted to be joining a big English club, and I know very well the quality that Chelsea has.
"It is a major challenge for me but I am determined and confident in my ability to adapt to this excellent league, and I look forward to meeting my new-team mates."
On the capture of Luiz, Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay said: "David Luiz is one of the great defensive prospects in world football, and already a Brazilian international. I am sure he will prove a valuable addition to the Chelsea squad."
Chairman Bruce Buck added: "It is a delight to have completed this transfer for a fantastic young footballer who we have admired for some time. David has played in the Champions League and the squad now has a more experienced look to it that will hopefully serve us well for the rest of this season and going forward."
The deal will take Nemanja Matic in the opposite direction, with the Serbian midfielder set to link up with Benfica over the summer once his loan deal at Vitesse Arnhem comes to an end.

I love Chelsea, is my favourite team in the whole world. I'm glad that we singed a new defender. We've been strugling a little bid in the defensive department but I think we'll improve on that because we have a good manager. Brazilian players have talent and they always give the best in everything they do. Welcome to Chelsea family Luiz, your country man Alex will teach and give you some guidance. enjoy

having luis and torres in the team is a sign of great things to come and i know the sky will be our limit.

Luiz should be a useful asset to the squad but I feel that perhaps we could have done with securing a midfield playmaker instead of Luiz and Torres.

excellent talent, likes to dribble, plays better has a central back, but can play very well as a left-back too. I'm a Benfica Fan and expect him to command chelsea defense already by next season.

at last carlo and the management of chelsea can identify chelsea,s loop holes by the two signings which were the central back and a striker: bravo

Happy Happy Happy. Seen him a bit for Benfica, looks very solid and only 23. JT and Luiz in the middle and push Ivanovic out to the right. Best left back in the world in Ash. Sturdy defense which is what is required. Torres the new cut and thrust up front. Happy days.

It's great to have all four English teams through to the Champions League knockout phase and on the last five occasions that's happened at least one has got to the final, so hopefully that's a good omen...
