Pushed to one side by Antonio Conte last season, David Luiz barely featured for Chelsea last season, making just 17 appearances in all competitions.
The likes of César Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Gary Cahill were all preferred in his stead, and the Brazilian’s future appears to be away from Stamford Bridge.
Over in France, Le10 Sport report as an exclusive that Arsenal are interested in saving him from his Blues nightmare, and have gone as far as making a €20m bid for the 31-year-old.
However, despite Luiz’s situation, Chelsea decided to turn down the Gunners’ offer.
As things stand, Arsenal are said to be ‘undecided’ whether to come back with an improved bid, but Le10 say that ‘shouldn’t be excluded’.
It’s worth remembering that David Luiz did feature four times under Unai Emery at Paris Saint-Germain before the Ligue 1 side decided to cash in on the Brazilian when Chelsea came knocking.
Considering he seemed inclined to use him prior to the sale, there’s a good chance the Spaniard didn’t have a say in the matter, and he may now be trying to sort out a reunion with the former Benfica starlet.
