Arsenal have finalised the signing of David Luiz from Chelsea for a fee of £8m.
The 32-year-old has signed a two-year contract at the Emirates Stadium. Luiz made 248 appearances over two spells at Chelsea. He underwent his medical on Thursday after the two sides reached an agreement.
Unai Emery said after the announcement:
“David has huge experience and I look forward to working with him again,” Arsenal head coach Unai Emery said.
“He is a well-known player and adds to our defensive strength.”
Arsenal needed a new centre-back after the departure of Lorient Koscielny to Ligue 1 side Bordeaux.
