Brazil centre-back Thiago Silva has completed his free transfer move to Chelsea from Paris St Germain.
The 35-year-old has signed a one-year Stamford Bridge contract, with the club holding the option of adding another 12 months.
Silva's addition will help manager Frank Lampard restructure his defence and follows Wednesday's £45million capture of England left-back Ben Chilwell from Leicester.
In addition, the club has already completed the signings of Malik Mothersille, Jimi Tauriainen and Xavier Mbuyamba this summer.
The Blues enter the 2020-21 season after finishing fourth in the Premier League in Frank Lampard's first campaign as manager.
