Chelsea star David Luiz is the latest centre-back linked with a January move to Barcelona as the La Liga leaders continue to hunt a replace for Javier Mascherano ahead of the second half of the season.

Catalunya Radio claims that Luiz himself has "offered his services" to Ernesto Valverde with his future at Stamford Bridge having been under major scrutiny since Antonio Conte left him out of the squad since September. The Brazil international returned to action days later in the 4-0 victory over Qarabag but the Chelsea defender has been unable to feature since the Champions League win due to an ill-timed knee injury.

Catalunya Radio says that Luiz is currently in Barcelona to address his medical issues and has taken advantage of the trip to Spain to offer his services to the La Liga giants in various meetings.


 However, the report suggests that Barcelona will turn down the proposal from Luiz due to financial reasons.
The La Liga giants are expected to sanction the departure of Mascherano to Hebei China Fortune in a deal worth around €10m (£8.8m, $11.8m).
