Dont hand Luiz new contract Arsenal and complete £53 million deal for perfect Bundesliga signing!
Arsenal need to forget about handing David Luiz a new contract and make sure that they sign Dayot Upamecano.
Luiz has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the past few days as his performance against Manchester City just shows how unimpressive he can be in that Arsenal shirt.
Luiz’s contact is due to expire at the end of the season and an agreement is not in place for an extension, and although the defender has admitted that he would like to stay at the club, it is time to let the man leave.
And that means that Arsenal go out into that transfer kitty and actually land a defender that can be a solid force at the back for the club, someone like the impressing Upamecano.
Upamecano has developed into one of the very best defenders in Europe over the past few seasons, as the leadership and physical ability to make a real impact at the club, and is seen as a great long-term investment for that £53 million he is reportedly going for.
Italy’s Tuttosport recebtly Leipzig have told AC Milan, Frenchman Upamecano is heading for Arsenal this summer and they no longer need to chase the signature of the talented 21-year-old, meaning that Arsenal are favourites to land the man.
Luiz is not a man that Arteta needs in his squad and if they can get rid of him this summer, DO IT! Upamecano is a player that is destined for the big time, is eager to make that move to a big club, and is in the budget of Arsenal.
If they decide to keep hold of Luiz for another season and then dont make a move for Upamecano, they would be massive fools, now is the time ti take some transfer risks and back Arteta.
If he is the man to lead the club back to the very top, give him the money and the players, and not make him hand contracts to players that are past their sell by date.
