Newcastle join Arsenal and Man United in David Luiz interest

Newcastle United have entered the race to sign David Luiz, according to our latest odds.

The Chelsea defender has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.

And our traders have slashed odds of the Magpies sensationally striking a deal which would see the Brazilian move to St James’s Park.

It’s now just 5/1 Luiz teams up with Rafa Benitez in the North-East, putting Newcastle firmly among the front runners for his signature.

Juventus are currently the 2/1 favourites ahead of Arsenal (5/2) and Manchester United (7/2).

Newcastle are now more likely than Barcelona (11/2) to land the defender.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Luiz could be heading out of Stamford Bridge in the near future and the latest odds are suggesting a shock move could be on the cards with odds of a Newcastle transfer continuing to shorten.”
