Chelsea center-back David Luiz is set to join Arsenal before the end of the transfer window. The Chelsea defender is expected to complete his move on the morning of transfer deadline day.
The Brazilian star trained away from other Chelsea squad on Wednesday,.
Having known that he wont be available for the next season to play for the Blues again.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery told a source that he wants to sign a center-back before the end of the transfer window, and it is well known that Luiz is on his list, though no formal agreement yet between the two clubs.
“If we can on the last day, we will try to sign another center-back, but one who has the capacity to help us,” said Emery.
“We have a lot of defensive players. Maybe, it is different when Laurent Koscielny tells us he wanted to leave.
“We tried to sign some important, expensive players for our defence. But when we can’t do that, the second line players don’t really convince us to sign them.”
Although Chelsea, who are facing ban to sign players currently for two years, are not willing to let David Luiz go, but the agreement will be finalized before the end of the transfer deadline.
