Serie A giants ready to make an offer for David Luiz

The Brazilian fell down the pecking order last season

Chelsea resigned David Luiz from Paris Saint-Germain for £32 million on transfer deadline day in August 2016, after selling the defender to the Ligue 1 giants back in 2014.

The Brazilian quickly settled into the team and inspired the Blues to win the 2016-2017 Premier League title under Antonio Conte. He was one of the standout players that season and was named in the PFA Team of the year.

But after an excellent season, the 31 year old struggled for a regular run in the team last season, managing to play just 17 times in all competitions. The defender spent most of the campaign sidelined with injury, although reports claim he was dumped after a bust-up with Conte.

He even missed out a place in the Brazil World Cup squad after an unconvincing campaign and it looks like his second spell at Stamford Bridge is all-but over.

Though the former Juventus manager has been tipped heavily to leave this summer and it is expected that he will be replaced by former Napoli Manager Maurizio Sarri. The Serie A team have already appointed Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager.

Should a managerial change be made, the Brazilian surely be eager to make a fresh start and try to prove his worth to his new coach in order to stay. But the Premier League giants are willing to ship him off to free up some extra funds as they are close to securing a deal for Juventus defender Daniele Rugani as a long term replacement.

The former PSG star has been linked with host of clubs including Arsenal, whose bid was rejected earlier rejected earlier this month. But the player could be reunited with his former manager as Serie A side wants to sign him.

Napoli are preparing to make an offer for Chelsea defender David Luiz, claims Il Matino. They are reportedly planning a £26 million bid for him.

He could be reunited with Ancelotti for the first time since his arrival at Stamford Bridge in 2011.
