Transfer Window: Real reason David Luiz is trying to force move to Arsenal



Chelsea defender, David Luiz, is pushing to leave the club, because he now finds himself as fourth choice under new manager, Frank Lampard, the UK Mirror reports.

The 32-year-old was a guaranteed starter under Maurizio Sarri last season.

Sarri preferred Luiz alongside Antonio Rudiger in the heart of his defence.

An impressive campaign for the Brazilian saw him sign a new two-year contract back in May.

However, following Lampard’s return to the club, Luiz is now desperate to push through a move to Arsenal and a reunion with Unai Emery.

It is understood that Luiz did not train with the Chelsea first-team at Cobham on Wednesday.

He was also an unused substitute in their last pre-season friendly.
