Chelsea have completed the signing of Filipe Luis, according to reports

The Brazilian would presumably replace Ashley Cole at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea have just completed the signing of Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona, and many fans are anticipating the announcement of another signing soon. According to Fabrizio Romano, that signing might not be the first one you'd expect to be announced.

Luis would fill a clear void at Chelsea, as he'd walk into the starting lineup at left back despite how well Cesar Azpilicueta played there last season. The move would also allow Azpilicueta to challenge Branislav Ivanovic on the right, as well as allowing the Serbian to effectively fill the role of third-choice center back. That fills the void left by Ashley Cole's departure, as well as the center back responsibilities of David Luiz.

At 29-years old, Luis is probably not exactly great value for our money, but with a squad that's beginning to look as if it might be the best in Europe next season, it's fairly hard to complain too much if this report proves to be true. A midfielder would still be nice though.
