Azpilicueta, who played for Spain at the recently concluded London Olympics, said that he is excited to join Chelsea.

"I'm very happy to play for Chelsea. It's a project I want to be a part of and to help the team grow. I am looking forward to helping the team win more trophies," he told Chelsea official site. "I'm a right-back and my first mission is to defend for the team. I also like to offer solutions for the team offensively and I enjoy going forward."

Chelsea had earlier given out official statement that it has signed Nigerian winger Victor Moses.

"The club can confirm that after four unsuccessful bids from Chelsea for Victor Moses, a fifth bid has today finally met the valuation and terms set by Wigan Athletic and been accepted. The player has been given permission to speak with Chelsea," the club gave out a statement on Thursday.

The European Champions have already signed big players like Germany's winger Marko Marin, Belgium's forward Eden Hazard and Brazil's playmaker Oscar Dos Santos to fulfill club owner Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich's dream of transforming the club into an entertaining one. It spent around £46 million in 2011 by signing Romelu Lukaku, Romeu, Juan Mata and Raul Meireles.

Chelsea FC tops the Premier League table, starting the season in style with two consecutive wins. Fernando Torres' controversial goal put the Blues ahead of Reading on Wednesday's match, which they won 4-2. They had earlier defeated Wigan Athletics 2-0 in the opening game last weekend.
