Arsenal has finalised the signing of David Luiz for £8 million on a two-year deal.
Announcing this on their Instagram handle, Arsenal said Luiz will wear number 23 shirt.
The Chelsea’s defender who spent six-and-a-half years at Stamford Bridge, underwent his medicals on Deadline Day after the two sides agreed on a fee.
Luiz trained away from the rest of Frank Lampard’s squad on Wednesday after indicating he wanted to leave the club.
Luiz started his career with Vitoria in Brazil, before moving to Portugal where he played for Benfica. He also had two spells with Chelsea and spent two years in France with Paris Saint-Germain, where he played under Unai Emery. He has 56 international appearances for Brazil to his name.
Unai Emery, who worked with Luiz at Paris Saint-Germain, told the club website:
“David has huge experience and I look forward to working with him again. He is a well known player and adds to our defensive strength.”
