David Luiz could be on his way to Napoli from Chelsea FC this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Brazilian defender could be set to be lined up for a move to the Stadio San Paolo if Rafael Benitez is appointed as the Italian club’s new manager.

David Luiz has found his first-team opportunities at Stamford Bridge to be severely restricted this season and he has not featured for the Blues since early February due to form and fitness issues.

According to the same story, Benitez is among the favourites to take over at Napoli in the summer and that could mean that he tries to make a move to bring David Luiz to Italy.

The same article says that David Luiz could be heading out of Stamford Bridge this summer, despite Antonio Conte also looking set to leave the club.

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are currently preparing for their crunch Premier League showdown against Liverpool FC at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues will need to win the game to keep alive their fading hopes of finishing in the top four and securing a place in the Champions League for next season.
