Chelsea defender, David Luiz could make a shocking transfer deadline move to city rival, Arsenal after training separately fro the squad.
Reports revealed that Luiz, who won the Europa League title with the team, has made his intention of a possible move away from Stamford Bridge to Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard.
The Brazilian centre-half did not turn up for training on Wednesday after becoming aware of interest from the Gunners.
Luiz has decided he wants to move to the Emirates Stadium ahead of Thursday’s deadline and has skipped the session with his team-mates in a bid to force a move across the capital.
Sportsmail understands Luiz has been a disruptive influence at Chelsea’s Cobham HQ in recent days, culminating in Wednesday’s no show.
Arsenal are yet to make a formal offer for Luiz, but that is expected imminently.
The Brazil international made 50 appearances in all competitions last campaign for the Blues.
Luiz returned to Stamford Bridge in 2016 after he was signed for £34million from Paris Saint-Germain.
He first joined Chelsea from Benfica for £21.3m in January 2011 before leaving to join PSG for £40m in 2014.
Luiz has won the Champions League, the Premier League, the FA Cup twice and the Europa League twice during two different spells in west London.
The Brazilian’s agent Kia Joorabchian, recently helped install Edu as Arsenal’s new technical director.
