The 23-year-old has signed a four-year contract at the Weserstadion until June 2014 and earlier reports have suggested the transfer fee is in the region of €7.5 million.
"It's my dream to play in a top league with a top club. I am overjoyed that this has worked out with Werder Bremen. I look forward to [moving to] the city and making the fans happy," the new signing told werder.de.
Head coach Thomas Schaaf was also delighted with the signing of the Brazilian.
