* Luiz reportedly on his way to Barcelona

Chelsea are yet to agree a fee with Barcelona but it is believed the English club would ask for an amount upward of £20m for the Brazilian international who has been something of a bit-part player this season.

Luiz was a key member of the Chelsea sides that won the Champions League and Europa League titles but has started less than half of the west London club’s Premier League fixtures this term.

Despite the defender’s preference to play as a centre back, coach Jose Mourinho has used him frequently in a defensive midfield role.

Chelsea signed Luiz in January 2011 for a fee of £20m in a deal that also saw Nemanja Matic move to Benfica and the big Blues star has gone on to make 143 appearances for the club.
It is hoped if he would be selected for Chelsea’s last EPL match of the season scheduled to hold on Sunday.
