Barcelona are in­ter­ested in sign­ing the Chelsea cen­tre-back, AS re­ports. The La Liga cham­pi­ons cur­rently only have two fit cen­tral de­fend­ers fol­low­ing in­juries to Thomas Ver­mae­len and Sa­muel Umtiti. Ger­ard Pique and Cle­ment Len­glet have forged a for­mi­da­ble part­ner­ship so far this sea­son but Ernesto Valverde’s side are set to en­ter the mar­ket in Jan­uary in a bid to add more strength to their de­fence. Although it would be ap­peal­ing for any player to wear the Barcelona shirt, it would take a lot for the Cata­lan side to lure Luiz from West Lon­don, con­sid­er­ing he is a key man for Mau­r­izio Sarri this term.
