‘A good choice’ – Fans react as defender completes transfer

Chelsea defender David Luiz completed a shock move to London rivals Arsenal on Thursday which stunned fans of both Premier League clubs.

There had been no indication that a move could happen until Wednesday when it was revealed that the player sat through training in a bid to force a move. It is understood that Luiz has signed a two-year deal with Arsenal paying £8 million for his services.

As expected fans reacted in different ways Chelsea fans generally had negative view with a few thanking the player for his determination and grit during his time at the club.

While Arsenal fans were excited to get a defender for cheap with quality Premier League experience.

Luiz arrival is the sixth signing in what is a busy summer for the Gunners. Brazilian youngster Gabriel Martinelli was the first signing from Brazil. The club also completed the signings of French defender William Saliba who was subsequently loaned back to Saint-Etienne.

Real Madrid ace Ceballos arrived on loan before the club broke their transfer record for Ivory Coast ace Nicolas Pepe. Celtic defender Kieran Tierney arrived on deadline day alongside Luiz making it a successful transfer window for the Gunners.

It remains to be seen whether manager Unai Emery will be able to harness this team into a Premier League winning side.

    I’m actually impressed with the signing that was done this transfer window but I am asking management to see reason In purchasing new addition to the club to enable us compete for major trophies. The board needs to know that soccer in general is a global game that every individual wants to invest in, and the players as well are not playing for the beauty of the game but rather the huge incentive they own on a weekly basis. Firstly, we as a club needs to know that we haven’t won the Barclay premier league since the golden generation of Thierry Henry and co, so this should set as a shame for a club with massive repetition around the world.
    Furthermore, I am asking all board members to kindly educate the club owner how the game of soccer is been manage today. I know fully well that every investor wants to generate huge incentive but in football you have to spent big to get the needed results.
