Arsenal have reached an agreement with Premier League rivals, Chelsea, to sign Brazilian star, David Luiz, for a reported £8 million fee.
According to the BBC, 32-year-old Luiz, who won the Premier League title with the Blues in 2017, is set to sign a short-term contract with the Gunners on transfer deadline day.
Luiz did not train with the Blues first-team on Wednesday after sensationally trying to force a transfer deadline move to the Gunners.
This is despite the former Paris Saint-Germain defender only signing a new two-year contract with Chelsea in May 2019.
That deal for Luiz broke the club’s policy of handing players aged 30 or above deals in excess of a year.
However, it is believed Luiz has made it clear he wants to leave Stamford Bridge following a series of disagreements over the past week.
What are your thoughts on this agreement? Will Luiz make a good signing for Arsenal?
