Arsenal Agree £8m Deal With Chelsea for David Luiz

​Arsenal look set to seal the deadline day transfer of David Luiz for £8m after the Gunners struck a deal with Chelsea to move the defender across London, while club scapegoat Shkodran Mustafi is being linked with a switch to Ligue 1.

Unai Emery has been on the hunt for reinforcements in the centre of defence, after watching his side ship 51 Premier League goals last campaign while club captain Laurent Koscielny sealed a move to Bordeaux this summer.

Fears over regular playing time at Stamford Bridge appeared to have swayed Luiz into leaving Frank Lampard’s side, while Ornstein also adds that Kieran Tierney’s move to Arsenal will be a £25m deal on a five-year contract. Both players are due to have their medicals on Thursday and will be completed ahead of the 5pm deadline.

With Luiz’ arrival expected in the next few hours, news of Mustafi’s looming exit may force Emery to dip into the market once more. The aforementioned Umtiti appears the only viable option at present, although it would require some fee to prize the World Cup winner away from the La Liga side.

Barcelona have appointed Ronald Koeman as their next coach, the club said in a statement on Wednesday, as the Catalans look to rebuild after their 8-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week.

Koeman, who has left his role as manager of the Netherlands, has signed a two-year-deal with Barcelona, who sacked Quique Setien on Monday after he presided over the club’s worst defeat ever in European competition.

Koeman, who will be officially presented at the Camp Nou stadium later on Wednesday, is dearly loved at Barca for his role in Johan Cruyff’s hugely successful side known as the ‘Dream Team’ and for scoring the goal that delivered the club’s first ever European Cup in 1992.

The defender later became the club’s assistant coach before embarking on a career as a head coach, managing Dutch sides Ajax Amsterdam, PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord plus Premier League sides Southampton and Everton and La Liga’s Valencia.

“Barcelona and Ronald Koeman have come to an agreement for him to be the team’s coach until 30 June 2022,” said Barca’s statement.

“A club legend and Barca’s hero at Wembley who gave fans their first European Cup, Koeman is coming back to the Camp Nou. But this time he will be in the dugout to lead the team.”
