Chelsea defender David Luiz heading to Arsenal with £8million deal agreed

Chelsea defender David Luiz heading to Arsenal with £8million deal agreed

Luiz enjoyed a central role under Maurizio Sarri last season, as Chelsea secured a third-place Premier League finish and lifted the Europa League title.

While that deal has been long mooted, talk of David Luiz moving across London to Arsenal from Chelsea only began to emerge on Wednesday.

Luiz was at Chelsea's Cobham training ground yesterday, but it is understood he did not take part in the main training session with Frank Lampard's men. But, the move does make sense as Arsenal do not have quality centre-back options following the departure of Koscielny. He is a well known player and adds to our defensive strength, ' said boss Unai Emery - who managed Luiz at PSG - upon confirmation of the transfer.

Former Gunners hitman Charlie Nicholas disagrees with that notion and believes the signing of Luiz could prove to be a masterstroke from Emery.

Having been ridiculed by Arsenal fans for much of his time in north London, it appears as if it will be one in and one out at the Emirates, with Sky Sports (via GFFN) claiming Mustafi is "potentially" on his way to a Ligue 1 club on Thursday. There is no problem in that for me. Besides, David Luiz is better than all the Arsenal defenders apart from Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

In the last week alone, The Gunners have been linked with Juventus' Daniele Rugani and RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano, seeing a £55m bid turned down for the young French defender.

"Finally, they have supported the manager, they have let him get on and it looks very exciting now".

Two players not looking to change their situation are Nathan Redmond and John McGinn, who have signed four and five-year contract extensions at Southampton and Aston Villa, respectively.
