Chelsea ready to meet £65m asking price for African star

Chelsea have knocked back £20m bid from Arsenal for Brazilain defender David Luiz.

The 31-year-old center-back faces an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge after falling down the pecking order under Antonio Conte last season and resulting in just 15 appearances being made in all competitions.

As the dethroned Premier League Champions look set to retain the Italian coach Conte for next season - although that could change in the coming days - and an exit for former Juventus boss will increase the chances of Luiz staying in West London.

According to Le10Sport claiming that Arsenal are showing interest in adding the Brazil international to their squad after the arrival of Unai Emery as Chelsea chiefs have knocked back their proposal

Luiz currently has one year remaining on his contract at West London club.
