David Luiz has been mentioned as a potential transfer target for Barcelona by Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo.

Barcelona appear to be in the market for an experienced defender, with Chelsea legend Branislav Ivanovic being linked with a surprise move to the Nou Camp.

Ivanovic is just one of multiple targets for the Spanish champions, with Luiz also being included in a list of names being considered by Barca boss Ernesto Valverde.

The chances of Luiz leaving Stamford Bridge are slim. Even if a club like Barcelona show interest, the Brazilian is unlikely to have his head turned.

Luiz has less than a year remaining on his contract with Chelsea, but he is expected to sign a new one imminently. His resurgence under Maurizio Sarri has all-but ensured that.

There are 13 more names on the shortlist reported by Mundo Deportivo, so Barca ought to be fine for options after discovering that Luiz is going nowhere…
