David Luiz takes final decision on leaving Arsenal

Arsenal defender David Luiz has finally arrived at a decision over his future with the club at the incoming summer transfer.

He told the club’s hierarchy that he will leave the Emirates at the end of the season, according to Metro UK.

The 34-year-old Brazilian joined the club in the summer of 2019 from London rivals Chelsea after failing out with former Blues’ boss Frank Lampard.

However, the former Paris Saint-Germain defender did not enjoy his first season at the Emirates but has improved this season.

Luiz and Arsenal subsequently opted to trigger a 12-month extension clause and the former Chelsea star has arguably been Arsenal’s most consistent central defender this term.

Injuries, however, have prevented the Brazilian from playing a full role during the decisive period of the campaign.

He underwent minor knee surgery last month and was ruled out of action for six weeks and then suffered a hamstring strain in his comeback appearance against Newcastle which ruled him out of the Europa League semi-final second leg against Villarreal
