With the passionate Brazilian joining Paris Saint-Germain this summer, we look at what the Premier League will be lacking without the presence of David Luiz.

Since his arrival from Benfica he's entertained and frustrated in equal measure, but the Premier League will certainly be poorer without his presence.

The Premier League's loss is certainly PSG's gain, simply scroll through our list to see why.

The Hair

Looking like a Brazilian Sideshow Bob from the Simpsons, Luiz's crazy curls make him one of the most easily recognisable players around.

Seeing the mop bounce around as he strolled forwards, showing his love for all things attacking was a sight to be hold. A hair style only rivalled by Man United's Marouane Fellani but with more attitude.

The Personality

Chelsea TV was lit up by the antics of Luiz, gate crashing interviews or pranking his fellow team mates.

Who could forgot his drunken rendition of Blue is the Colour on Chelsea's Champions League parade?

Luiz brings personality that escapes and shows a less serious side to the game, which is rare in modern day football.

The Premier League will need a new jester, now this one has headed for Ligue 1.

The Goals

The technical ability of Luiz is immense with long range thunderbolts, like the one he netted against Colombia, a feature of his game.

Either from open play or free kicks, his power and precision combine to make him a real potent attacking threat.

For a centre back to be so technically gifted and able moving forward is virtually unseen and his goal threat from the heart of defence will be a real miss for Chelsea fans.

The Pundits

Hearing the latest analogy for his slack defending was a highlight on Saturday nights, as pundits would try and analyse his defensive performance.

Gary Neville suggesting he played as if he were being controlled by a Playstation is a favourite and the most apt, as like a child wanting their defenders on the scoresheet, fans' hair would be ripped out at his travels deep into the opposition half.

Having a more defensive minded player slot in may please Alan Hansen, but the more witty among us will miss the latest name for Luiz's unique brand of football.

The Passion

Most clear from his recent World Cup appearances, football is more than just a career or a game for the Brazilian, who rallies the crowd, his teammates and gets himself in a frenzy, usually before a ball has even been kicked. 

Whilst other players might not seem too bothered or hide, Luiz is always happy to pick up the ball and work for his team, his will to win shining through, his positivity a real miss.
