Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is pleased with the speculations surrounding the future of David Luis at the Stamford Bridge.

The Brazilian defender is keen on securing £8m switch to London rivals Arsenal and the report in the Telegraph claims that the relationship between Luis and Lampard is nothing to write home about.

Luiz,32, was told to train away from the first-team squad ahead of their upcoming Premier League opener against Manchester United.

The former PSG defender and Lampard were involved in a bust-up way back in 2013 during their respective first spells at the club.

Chelsea was beaten 3-2 by Rubin Kazan in the Europa League, with Lampard clashing with his teammate over his defensive responsibilities.

The former England midfielder was seen jabbing his finger into Luiz's chest, with the pair clashing as they made their way off the pitch.

Yossi Benayoun was even forced to act as a peacemaker with boss Rafa Benitez publicly discussing the incident.
