Barca target David Luiz

Barcelona are prepared to test Chelsea's resolve to hang on to Brazilian defender David Luiz, who is attracting interest from the Spanish club a week before the end of the transfer window.

Luiz (25) is valued at about £30m by Chelsea, who have no immediate plans to sell a player they bought in January of last year. Luiz, who was in Barcelona at a promotion event yesterday, is injured and missed the Premier League win over Reading on Wednesday, having first announced that he would not be playing on Twitter on the morning of the game.

Chelsea, meanwhile, last night had a fifth bid accepted from Wigan for Victor Moses.
