Barcelona plan last-ditch effort to sign Chelsea star

Barcelona are reportedly ready to make a last-ditch effort to sign Chelsea defender David Luiz.

The Spanish giants have been strongly linked with the 40million-rated defender this summer.

Barcelona failed with a bid to sign the 26-year-old a year ago, but he is top of the club's wish-list this summer.

The Mirror reports that Barcelona are confident that a huge offer may tempt Chelsea to sell.

Luiz signed a new long-term contract at Stamford Bridge last summer.
