Chelsea are set for significant changes this summer and it’s likely that a number of high-profile departures will occur at Stamford Bridge.
The Sun reports former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti is looking to raid the Blues in the market this summer, after being appointed at Napoli, and his prime defensive target is Brazil international David Luiz.
Ancelotti was named as the successor to Maurizio Sarri yesterday, who is widely reported to be the prime managerial candidate for Chelsea, and he wants club president Aurelio De Laurentiis to invest heavily in order to challenge Juventus for the Serie A crown next season.
With Kalidou Koulibaly, himself a Chelsea target, expected to leave the Serie A runners-up, Ancelotti is looking to sign David Luiz as a replacement – having brought the South American defender to Stamford Bridge in 2011.
The 31-year-old has struggled for first-team opportunities this season, making just nine Premier League starts and missing out in Brazil’s World Cup squad as a result.
