Inter eyeing move for Chelsea defender
Manager Jose Mourinho does not appear to have the Brazilian international in his future plans and could be willing to part with the former Benfica man.
According to Madrid-based newspaper AS the 26 year-old could join Italian giants Inter as early as January.
Chelsea are thought to be interested in Andrea Ranocchia who could be used in a player-exchange deal with the Blues.
Luiz has gained notoriety for his defensive errors while at Stamford Bridge and could seek a fresh start in Italy under the guidance of coach Walter Mazzarri.
The 2012 Champions League winner medalist has played in 11 matches in all competitions this season.
