Chelsea have signed Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi from Marseille on a five-year deal for a reported £33m fee.
The 22-year-old is the first signing of the Antonio Conte era at Stamford Bridge.
The exact amount that was required for the west London club to complete the transfer was not disclosed but it is believed to be £33m.
Crystal Palace had a similar bid for the striker accepted last weekend but Chelsea muscled in and pipped their London rivals to clinch the player's signature.
The forward grabbed 23 goals for Marseille last season and scored for Belgium against Hungary at Euro 2016.
"I am delighted to sign for one of the biggest clubs in Europe and embark on the next chapter in my career," Batshuayi told Chelsea's club website. "I hope I can help Chelsea win many trophies during my time at Stamford Bridge.
"Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have told me many good things about the club, and with Antonio Conte coming in it's an exciting time to become a Chelsea player.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for myself and my family, I am looking forward to playing in the Premier League next season."
