Arsenal have reached an agreement for the £8 million ($10m) transfer of David Luiz from Chelsea, with the Brazilian set to join the Gunners on a two-year deal despite the Blues not being in a position to sign a replacement.
Chelsea are currently unable to bring in any new players due to a two-window transfer ban after FIFA found the club to be in breach of regulations relating to the international transfer and registration of players under the age of 18.
Arsenal, meanwhile, have been in the market for a new centre-back following a poor season at the back in 2018-19 and former captain Laurent Koscielny’s move to Bordeaux has only furthered the need for reinforcements.
A top source at Chelsea has revealed this:
Chelsea defender David Luiz fell out with Lampard after a poor outing against Salzburg and refused to take corrections.
Frank Lampard decided Luiz should train away from the rest of his Chelsea players at Cobham, following a week in which the Brazilian is believed to have become a disruptive influence.
