David Luiz’s future at Stamford Bridge has been in doubts due to his reported frosty relationship with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
A lot of clubs have been linked with the Brazilian, including Real Madrid and Manchester United.
And now, Newcastle United are said to have joined the race to sign the Chelsea defender next month, but are only interested in a loan deal.
Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez knows Luiz from his time at Stamford Bridge and both were spotted chatting for several minutes after Newcastle’s 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.
Newcastle are in terrible form and Benitez hopes to strengthen his side in January.
