Chelsea outcast David Luiz is reportedly being linked with a shock loan move in the January transfer window.

10 Stars Entering The Last Six Months Of Their Contracts

The Brazilian has fallen out of favour with Blues boss Antonio Conte, and his future at Stamford Bridge seems uncertain.

According to The Sun, Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez is trying to bring the Brazil international on loan to St James’ Park.  

Reports are suggesting that the former Liverpool and Chelsea manager has been in contact with the centre back ever since the Magpies 3-1 defeat to the Blues.

The 30-year-old star returned to the London club in August 2016 for £32 million (R546 million) from Paris Saint-Germain, after selling him to the Ligue 1 giants for £50 million (R854 million) two years earlier.

It remains unclear whether or not Conte will allow the defender to leave the club in the upcoming transfer window. .

Newcastle are desperate to bring in some reinforcements in the next couple of weeks as they try and stay clear of the relegation zone.

Arsenal have also been linked with Luiz this week, and the English media have been saying that Arsene Wenger is willing to pay around £25 million (R427 million) for the player.
