Juventus are moving for Chelsea defender David Luiz.

The Mirror says Chelsea defender Luiz could be offered an escape route to Juventus.

The Italians have made a £2million enquiry for the Brazilian’s Blues team-mate and fellow centre-back Alex – but are also interested in signing Luiz.

Since joining from Benfica for £24m last January, Luiz has struggled to adapt to English football.

Now, Juve are ready to see if Chelsea want to cut their losses with an offer of around £15m to take him to Turin.

The Old Lady of Italian football, currently riding high at the top of Serie A are also said to be in talks to sign Chelsea attacker Salomon Kalou and indeed the Ivory Coast man seems far more likely to make that move than Brazilian David Luiz. Whilst it’s true that the 24 year old defender has been inconsistent this season it seems unlikely that the Blues would look to sell a player who only joined the club less than a year ago.

Kalou on the other hand has probably grown tired of trying to persuade his worth after failing to do so with a succession of Chelsea managers over the past five years.

A move to Serie A could well be a new challenge the former Feyenoord man is very interested in making and Juventus, though top of the pile in Italy, could do with adding to their firepower as currently most of their goals have come from their midfield from the likes of Claudio Marchisio and Simone Pepe.

Given that Alessandro Del Piero is also set to leave in the summer a move for Kalou may be a sensible option.
