Arsenal set to announce David Luiz, Tierney deals today
Arsenal are very close to sealing the transfers of Chelsea’s David Luiz and Celtic left-back, Kieran Tierney, according to Sky Sports transfer expert Dharmesh Sheth.
According to him, he was reliably informed that both defenders should complete their moves to the Emirates by Thursday morning.
“I’ve just received a text from a very reliable source of mine. They’ve told me in the past few minutes that they expect Kieran Tierney and David Luiz to be Arsenal players before the deadline tomorrow.
“I must reiterate this is just one source, a reliable one at that. It’s the same person that told us Aaron Ramsey would not be signing a new contract at Arsenal and that told us Edu would become Arsenal’s new Technical Director.
“Just received another text regarding David Luiz, it says, ‘Not this evening, probably be done in the morning’. This looks like Kieran Tierney and Luiz, all the noises we’re getting, they will be Arsenal players,” Sheth said.
Arsenal has been in pursuit for Tierney all summer, but Luiz came as a late target, after he refused to train with Chelsea on Wednesday to force his move
