David Luiz’s future at Stamford Bridge has been in doubt as he fell down the pecking order last term in Conte’s side, and various speculations have suggested that he may leave the club this summer.

The report went on to claim that Arsenal might be working on offering an improved bid for the defender as the initial bid was rejected by the Stamford Bridge outfit.

David Luis made just 9 starts in the Premier League for Chelsea last season.
