One of Arteta’s favourites will not be offered a contract extension

This will probably be David Luiz’s last season at Arsenal with the Gunners already planning for life without him, a new report claims.

Arsenal has had the Brazilian in their squad for the last two seasons and he is one of the players that Mikel Arteta trusts to lead the team at the back.

It was surprising that he was given a new deal at the end of last season. 

However, he has been used frequently by Arteta in this campaign, which justifies why he was kept at the club.

The Brazilian hasn’t been consistent this season with fitness problems beginning to plague him regularly.

Apart from him, Arsenal has Gabriel Magalhaes, Pablo Mari and Rob Holding as centre-back options.

They also have Konstantinos Mavropanos and William Saliba out on loan and doing well at their temporary homes.

With so many options to choose from ahead of next season, Football London says the Gunners will not give Luiz a new deal.

The report claims that the Brazilian has done well for the club, but they are looking forward to building their team without him in the picture.

Luiz has the remaining months of the season to play his way into a contract with a new team.

    Correct decision for me
    Time to give our young CBs room to develop and blossom
    Apart from William and Mavropanos, there’s the likes of Zack Medley and Daniel Ballad waiting for the chance to show what they can offer

      True. Zack is top. Liked him the first time I saw him play, just like Saka.

  2. Aaron says:

    Zech Medley is our guy!
    Zech…..

    It would be a strange one if he wasn’t offered a contract because he has been our best defender and make a mockery of bringing him to the club. I doubt the article is true.

    1. Phil says:

      Yeah Reggie- I doubt it somehow. I would keep Luiz over Holding. A far better defender and is the only player in the team who is a natural leader. Also would be a perfect mentor to the younger players

      1. Reggie says:

        Precisely Phil, his obvious presence and leadership is still better than what we have anywhere else.

    In order for this club to truly move forward we must simply cut the Luiz and Xhaka cords, which isn’t to suggest that they haven’t showed some improvements since the start of the new year, but their uptick in form doesn’t erase the fact that they have not only cost us on countless occasions, they likewise comprise the “security blankie” that has allowed our inexperienced manager to employ a overtly negative and uninspiring game-plan far too often…neither are near good enough to justify occupying such a lofty position when it comes to making crucial tactical decisions, especially when those very decisions have negatively impacted the betterment of the whole

    👌👌👌👌👌 I definitely agree with you Reggie, he is our best defender and should extend his contract for another year.

    I think neither David Lewis nor Jacka will leave in summer. They are two experienced players who can gradually transfer their expertise to the youth.I agree we have talented youth,but the change doesn’t happen over night.The process of substitution needs more patience.
