LUIZ WANTS ARSENAL MOVE.
THE BRAZIL STAR IS ON EMERY’S LIST.
Chelsea defender David Luiz did not train with the rest of the squad today, Sky Sports have reported.
According to widespread reports, the Brazil international is eager to secure a move to Arsenal.
The Gunners, who recently lost Laurent Koscielny to Ligue 1 side Bordeaux, are keen on improving their defence, and Luiz is said to be one of a number of central defenders Unai Emery is monitoring at the moment, but no formal bid has been made yet.
The Blues are also under a transfer ban and wouldn’t want to let Luiz go as they won‘t be able to sign a replacement.
Luiz is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2021 after signing an extension in May of this year. Rumours suggest the defender will join Arsenal in an £8m deal before the transfer window shuts down in England.
