Ancelotti wants David Luiz reunion at Napoli

  Ancelotti wants David Luiz reunion at Napoli New Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti is looking to sign Chelsea defender David Luiz this summer, according to Italian sources. The Brazilian centre-half is in his second stint with the Blues, having signed in 2016, just two years after leaving for Paris Saint-Germain. Having fallen out of favour with likely soon to leave Chelsea manager Antonio Conte last season, Luiz struggled for consistent game time, only making four appearances since the turn of the year. The 31-year old is now said to be considering his options, with a return to former club Benfica another option. Now according to Italian outlet La Repubblica, as cited by talkSPORT, Ancelotti wants to bring the Brazilian to Naples as he looks to challenge Juventus for the 2018/19 Scudetto. Despite Ancelotti having managed Chelsea and PSG, the Italian and Luiz haven’t worked together much. Ancelotti did however sign him for Chelsea in January 2011, several months before he was sacked by owner Roman Abramovich. Chelsea are also said to be interested in Napoli enforcer Kalidou Koulibaly, so any move for Luiz could help the Blues in their pursuit of the Senegal international. Ancelotti is also looking to reunite with Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal, another player who has been linked with Chelsea in recent months.
