It is being widely reported that Arsenal are on the verge of finally signing a central defender and it has to be said, a very controversial signing at that.
Chelsea centre half David Luiz is expected to sign for Arsenal on Thursday, according to Sky Sports News.
The 32-year-old trained away from his Chelsea teammates on Wednesday after informing the club that he wants to move to North London and sign for Arsenal.
It has to be said this one is nothing short of being classed as a shocker, no one saw this one coming and it is not universally welcomed by Arsenal fans.
Anyone checking social media will have noticed that the vast majority of Arsenal fans are not overwhelmed by this development, in fact, they are downright unhappy.
Luiz is seen as being over the hill and not much of an upgrade on what is already available to manager Unai Emery and it is not out of the question that he could be named as the new Arsenal captain.
This transfer window has been a good one so far for Arsenal but for a lot of the fans it will be tainted by this signing.
From a personal standpoint, I see this as a bloody disastrous signing, I do not rate Luiz at all, he is a liability and not the sort of player that Arsenal should be signing.
