Chelsea's Brazilian maverick David Luiz is on the verge of swapping Stamford Bridge for the Parc des Prince according to SkyBet, who have suspended betting on the proposed summer transfer as the Blues look to firm up plans for a massive squad overhaul during the close season.

Luiz was largely used in central midfield by Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho this season, after failing to convince the Blues boss that he deserved to disrupt John Terry and Gary Cahill's blossoming central defensive partnership.

The 27-year-old has been linked with Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain over the last three months, but SkyBet have decided the French champions are overwhelming favourites to secure his services and as a result have stopped the market on his next club.

SkyBet confirmed the news to the Daily Star in a short statement, revealing: "We've just seen a hefty bet on David Luiz to move from Chelsea to PSG so have suspended betting after his odds we're slashed from 12/1 to 4/6 on."

Mourinho is widely expected to let the Selecao star move on to rebuild a problem central midfield area, although the solution is probably already in West London thanks to a January swoop for Nemanja Matic.

Jon Obi Mikel is also likely to lose out in a midfield reshuffle, as Mourinho bids to make sure that there is no repeat of a trophyless first season back in charge of the Blues.

Luiz will want to focus on delivering a strong performance for Brazil at this summer's World Cup, so expect his future to be resolved either before the tournament begins or later this summer once dust has settled on this summer's South American showpiece.
