Transfer News – David Luiz a step away from joining Arsenal
Luiz has been absent from Chelsea’s training session since Wednesday (7/8).
Chelsea defender David Luiz is on the verge of moving to another London club, Arsenal .
Luiz will undergo medical tests at Arsenal’s training base on Thursday (8/8) afternoon or before the transfer limit at 17:00 local time.
Previously, Arsenal had agreed on the cost of Chelsea for Luiz, which is £ 8 million.
“If we can recruit players on the closing day of the transfer, we will try to bring in a central defender. Yes, a defender who has the capacity to help us,” said Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, some time ago.
“We try to hook some important and expensive players to the back line. But, we cannot do that, second-class players do not really convince us,” he added.
Arsenal really need an extra defender to fill Laurent Koscielny’s slot which was released to Bordeaux for £ 4.6 million.
