Chelsea’s David Luiz Forcing Arsenal Move
By Ufuoma Egbamuno
Chelsea defender David Luiz has reportedly refused to train with the Blues in a bid to force a move to neighbours, Arsenal.
The Telegraph and L'Equipe reports that the Brazilian International has made it clear he wants to leave Chelsea.
The 30 year old just signed a new two year deal with Chelsea in May – this broke a tradition at Chelsea that only hands out one year deals to players over the age of 30.
Chelsea coach Frank Lampard seems to favour a Kourt Zouma and Andreas Christensen partnership and it is understood the Chelsea legend is willing to let Luiz leave.
Arsenal are currently in the hunt for a defender after former captain Laurent Kolscieny joined League 1 side, Bordeaux.
The Gunners have been linked to Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti as well as Juventus defender Daniele Rugani.
