If Antonio Conte was still Chelsea manager it would be very surprising to see David Luiz still in the squad.
The Brazilian defender fell out of favour under the coach’s stewardship last season and it seemed only a matter of time before he was shipped out.
However, the reverse happened as Conte was the one to be shown the door and Luiz was given a new lease of life under Maurizio Sarri.
The 30-year-old has started all seven of the Blues’ Premier League matches as part of a back four.
Gary Cahill has been ousted by the new boss and instead, Luiz has been partnering Antonio Rudiger in defence.
According to the London Evening Standard, the West London outfit are keen to offer the centre-back a new contract.

The former Paris Saint-Germain star, who sillyseason.com reports is currently earning £120,000 per week, will come to the end of his deal next summer.
Does Luiz deserve to have his contract extended?
