Everton Luiz reportedly failed to attend training for Partizan Belgrade, as he is trying to force through a transfer to SPAL.
According to Sportitalia, the Brazilian midfielder did not turn up at the agreed time today.
Serbian media suggest his absence was agreed with the player, but his contract is due to expire in June and a January sale seems likely.
SPAL are the hot favourites to sign the 29-year-old.
