Chelsea have completed a deal to sign midfielder Eden Hazard from French club Lille.
The Belgium international, 21, has agreed personal terms and passed a medical with the Blues.

"When they won the Champions League I told myself, 'Why not Chelsea?'," said Hazard.
"There was a struggle between Chelsea and [Manchester] United but, for me, Chelsea has the best project. It's a wonderful club."
Chelsea are reportedly paying £32m to sign the talented youngster, who added on French radio station RMC: "The [Chelsea] team is young and I have a better chance to play there.
"If I play well enough at Chelsea, I could win my place in the starting team."
Hazard won the league and cup double with Lille in 2010-11 and, in his final season at the Ligue 1 club, he scored 21 goals in 48 games.
Hazard signed off by scoring a hat-trick in his final game against Nancy last month.
But he failed to live up to his reputation when producing a quiet performance
as Belgium lost to England at Wembley on Saturday.
His appearance took his tally to 28 caps.
