Arsenal in talks with Brazilian target and David Luiz is helping out

Arsenal is reportedly in talks with soon-to-be PSG free agent, Thiago Silva, as Mikel Arteta looks to bolster his team.

The Gunners have been struggling at the back recently and although they have handed new deals to David Luiz and Pablo Mari, it appears that Arteta will still look to add some quality to his backline when the transfer window reopens.

Arsenal will have William Saliba back in their team for next season, but the Frenchman is inexperienced and he would benefit from more experienced defenders around him.

Silva won’t be offered a new deal at PSG, and the Brazilian will leave the French side at the end of their Champions League campaign in August.

Le10sport is claiming that a number of teams are looking to sign him and a recent report on their website indicates that Arsenal is the latest team to show interest in his signature.

The same report claims that the Gunners have started talks to take him to London and their effort is being helped by David Luiz.

Luiz is national teammates with Silva and they also played together at club level when Luiz played for the French side.

Silva is already 35, but the Brazilian remains one of the best defenders of his generation. He would also come with the much-needed winning experience that will be valuable in the Arsenal dressing room.

    Too old, premier league is difficult for an old cargo like him. Arsenal need a young carrier.

    Arsenal is not China club neither Is Us club that were old players will go before they retire. Our opponents are busy buying better under age players but we are busy seeking for old players. Experience without strength is nonsense. We need better players like partey, dayot, Freakish, Sancho, Ake, so many of them. I’m loosing hope because the owner don’t have good ambition for our club.

      Well if the owners have no interest in spending on the team to bridge the gap in relation to Liverpool, man city , United and Chelsea then they should pack off or sell the club to those willing to spend, This buying the right player who can perform on all occasions not feeble and lazy player like Ozil.

    I remember an old thriller movie from the late 70s by Franklin J Schaffner, “The Boys from Brazil”. Starring REAL OLD GUYS like Gregory Peck, Lawrence Olivier, James Mason… Thiago Silva,36, David Luiz, 33, etc. Dead bodies on the Ashburton Cemetery. GtH!

      Gio. To defend TS. He got a yellow card in the game against Colombia and didn’t play vs Germany in Belo Horizonte on the 8th of July 2014. But Clown Luiz did, and he had a guy who call himself Dante (what an Inferno!) by his side that unforgettable najt
