Barcelona have reportedly made contact with Chelsea regarding the availability of Chelsea defender David Luiz and the Brazilian defender is willing to talk terms over a sensational switch, according to Goal.com.
Luiz was the subject of a summer bid from Barca during the last transfer window, with the Catalan giants now reportedly reviving their interest in a central defender which fits their possession-heavy style.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is thought to be prepared to receive offers for the Selecao star but would only sanction the proposed move for a significant transfer fee, still rating Luiz as a player capable of aiding their quest for silverware this season.
Barca have been consistently linked with a string of top centre-backs for the last two seasons with Carles Puyol turning 36 in April, but have so far been content to stick with Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano in that position.
Luiz has largely played second fiddle to the centre-back partnership of Gary Cahill and John Terry at Stamford Bridge so far this season, making nine Premier League appearances including a start in central midfield against Liverpool last weekend.
Any move is dependent on Barca meeting the high asking price and the Blues signing a quality replacement, with French youngster Kurt Zouma thought to be on a shortlist of Chelsea targets for next summer.
