David Luiz is close to agreeing a one-year contract extension at Chelsea, Goal understands.
The Brazilian defender will see his current deal at Stamford Bridge expire at the end of the season.
He has been edging towards the free agent pool with no renewal in place.
Speculation has linked him with moves elsewhere as his contract runs down, with Napoli and Monaco among those to have been credited with holding an interest.
Luiz is, however, ready to bring any uncertainty over his future to a close.
A 12-month agreement is on the table and the 31-year-old is ready to put pen to paper.
It is understood that his representatives have been in London for meetings with Chelsea.
With positive talks held, all parties are now prepared to prolong their association.
