‘Brilliant business!’ Fans react to the news that Chelsea defender is joining Arsenal


Chelsea defender David Luiz has emerged as a surprise transfer target for fellow English Premier League side Arsenal. The Brazillian center back trained alone on Wednesday as he tries to force a move to the Emirates Stadium.

Luiz has a close relationship with Arsenal head coach Unai Emery with the two having worked together at French club Paris Saint Germain. Chelsea manager Frank Lampard decided that Luiz should train alone after he became a disruptive figure in the dressing room.

Arsenal is in need of a center back, especially after club captain Laurent Koscienly left to sign for Bordeaux in Ligue 1. The news that they might get a center back who has won everything in English football received mixed reactions from the fans.

The Brazil international won the Champions League with Chelsea in his first full season before he switched to Paris Saint Germain where he worked under Unai Emery.

Should the deal go through he will become the Gunners 5th summer signing following previous captures of William Saliba, Dani Ceballos, Gabriele Martinelli, Nicholas Pepe, and Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.
