The Catalan side are confident of having their transfer ban overturned and have set about drawing up a list of summer targets with a number of changes expected at the Nou Camp, not least with boss Gerardo Martino expected to leave the club to take over as Argentine national team coach after the 2014 World Cup finals.

Luiz has been used on a limited basis by Jose Mourinho this season, handing the 26 year old just 15 starts out of 35 Premier League fixtures, and in a similar situation to Juan Mata it seems that the Chelsea manager is ready to cash-in on a player who is not a significant part of his plans.

Mourinho is keen to adopt a sensible approach during the transfer window and will look to trim his squad ahead of bring in a fair few new additions, much as he did in January.

Luiz played a key role in Chelsea’s Champions League and Europa League triumphs but may now feel the time is right to leave the west London club and a move to replace veteran Carles Puyol at Barcelona is sure to tempt the former Benfica man.
