Arsene Wenger is in desperate need of a quality and experienced defender who can coordinate the team at the back.
The Frenchman has reportedly made a £25million offer for Westbrom’s center-back Jonny Evans, but he is not certain of getting the player due to competition from free-spending Manchester City.
Arsene Wenger has turned to David Luiz to provide the solution to his team’s awful performance at the back. The Frenchman man is believed to explore Luiz’ lack of game-time at the West London club to lure him to join the Gunners this month.
According to the Mirror, Arsenal are set to spend £30million on the player’s signature before the end of the month.
Jose Mourinho was the first manager to show interest in Luiz, however, he is yet to make an official approach to sign the out-of-favor Brazil international defender.
It was reported earlier in the week via Italian media outlet Gazzetta dello that Juventus are considering getting the player on a six-month loan deal. The Scudetto Champions are not confident of keeping Alex beyond January due to several contract offers they are receiving from Premier League clubs for his services.
The Old Lady are desperate to bring David Luiz to Turin in an effort to replace Sandro should the Brazilian defender depart in January. Real Madrid are also interested in his signature, but they are yet to make an approach to the player’s representative.
