Chelsea assistant manager Roberto Di Matteo watched Neymar play for Brazil in Germany last month and the club will be buoyed by the knowledge that the 19-year-old is enjoying his time in the capital this week.
Luiz said: "I would definitely like Neymar in my team but it is up to him to decide where he wants to play. But I hope he signs for Chelsea.
"Neymar's getting to know London and he likes it very much. I love it here, too. It's one of the best cities in the world - all I miss is the beach."
