Serie A giants linked with summer move for Chelsea 31-year-old star

Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti wants to land David Luiz from Chelsea this transfer market as he looks to strengthen Partenopei’s defensive alternatives, according to a report from the Daily Mirror.

The Italian giants want to bolster their back-line ahead of next campaign, and with Ancelotti known to be an admirer of David, it seems he is willing to make attempts to lure him away from the West London.

Luiz struggled with injuries during last season and subsequently fell out of favour under Italian tactician Antonio Conte. With his compatriot, Maurizio Sarri set to come in, though, his future at Chelsea remains unclear.

Ancelotti worked alongside David Luiz during his stint in charge of the Blues, and the Daily Mirror believes that the Italian boss will offer the 31-year-old star an escape route away from the Premier League.

The Blues appear to be closing in on the landing of Daniele Rugani from the Serie A giants Juventus, which could lead them to the sale of David as he looks set to see his second stint with the club brought to an end.
