The arrival of Siquiera at the Calderon, pending a medical, opens the door to the likely departure of Atletico left back Felipe Luis who has been strongly linked to a move to Chelsea.

"Siqueira will increase the competitiveness of the group," sports director Jose Luis Perez Caminero told the Atletico website on Friday.

"He is a player that is very strong at set-plays, taking penalties, he has a lot of attacking qualities as well as great defensive ability."
