Mikel Arteta Hails “Leader” David Luiz As He Gives Update On Arsenal Contract Talks
Mikel Arteta hails “leader” David Luiz as he gives update on Arsenal contract talks.
Mikel Arteta heaped praise on Arsenal defender David Luiz as he provided an update on negotiations over a contract extension for the Brazilian.
Luiz, 33, joined the Gunners in 2019 and signed a one -year extension at the Emirates last summer. Quizzed on whether Luiz is close to signing a new deal, Arteta told reporters: “No, there are still a few months to go on that. I all the time talk to him about this kind of thing so we’re in a good position.
“He showed his character first of all with the decision he made to join the club when he was with a club where he was winning trophies and he was still comfortable and under contract.
The Brazilian veteran has been a regular at centre-back and has racked up 17 appearances in all competitions, but he will be available for free this summer if he does not agree to new terms with Arsenal chiefs
