David Luiz is reportedly refusing to train with Chelsea while pushing for a move to Arsenal.

L’Equipe, Daily Mail and The Telegraph are among the outlets reporting that the Brazilian has taken action to push for a transfer across London to be reunited with Unai Emery.

Luiz signed a new two-year deal in May upon the expiry of his previous contract with Chelsea unable to sign reinforcements this summer.

But it seems the 32-year-old has had a change of heart and wishes to leave Stamford Bridge for Arsenal, even though it is said that the Gunners have yet to make a formal move for the defender with only 24 hours remaining before the deadline.

Reports suggest there have been a series of disagreements behind the scenes involving Luiz, who was left out of Frank Lampard’s team for their final pre-season friendly at the weekend.
