Various reports, including that of BBC's David Ornstein state that the Gunners' bid of £8 million for the Brazilian centre-back has been accepted and that Arsenal will offer a two-year deal to Luiz.

This deal just doesn't make a lot of sense, especially after Chelsea inked David Luiz to a new contract just past year. I'm delighted to be here.

"It makes things a little bit easier in terms of maybe pushing the boat out a little bit more but we're not going to break transfer records and spend silly money", said Lennon, who has signed defenders Hatem Abd Elhamed, Boli Bolingoli and Christopher Jullien, and 18-year-old midfielder Luca Connell this summer.

"It's very, very hard to produce a quality long-term first-team player but we have done that over the last 10-15 years very well compared to a lot of other clubs". Now we have the squad and we have finished the transfer market, but it's still open in other countries.

Arsenal kick off their 2019/20 Premier League campaign away to Newcastle on Sunday.

The Scotland global will now compete with Sead Kolasinac for the left-back spot in Emery's starting XI and he has already been backed to succeed in new surroundings by Celtic legend Davie Hay, who feels he will be a "sensation" for the Gunners.

"For some, that's impossible for them to achieve that performance for us because they arrived later or started training with us after injuries".

But following their busy transfer window, former Paris Saint-Germain boss Emery is now keen to push on and secure a return to the Champions League.

All this meant that, in total, the Premier League's summer spending reached £1.41bn, just short of the £1.43bn record, following 99 permanent signings.

"These are just decisions that I do daily".

"We have to remain competitive while we are in this position".

"It's the first way for us to achieve our targets and objectives to be in the top four, but we know it's going to be hard".
