Arsenal have signed Brazil International David Luiz from Chelsea.


The 32-year-old joins the Gunners after signing a 2-year deal reportedly worth £8m.


He becomes Unai Emery’s second signing on transfer deadline day after the arrival of Scotland International Kieran Tierney from Celtic for £25m.


Emery, who worked with Luiz at PSG says he is excited with the signing as the defender brings a lot of experience to the team.


“David has huge experience and I look forward to working with him again. He is a well known player and adds to our defensive strength”, Emery said.


Luiz- who has had two spells with Chelsea- had 36 Premier League appearances for Chelsea last season, scoring three goals. He won four major trophies with the club.


He will wear the number 23 shirt at Arsenal.
