LONDON – Arsenal have signed Brazilian centre back David Luiz from London rivals Chelsea, the Premier League clubs said on Thursday.
The details were not disclosed, but British media reported the transfer fee was approximately £8 million, and the 32-year-old had signed a two-year contract.
Luiz, the 10th player to wear the colours of both London clubs in the Premier League era, joined Chelsea in 2011 from Benfica.
He won the Champions League (2012), Premier League (2017) and FA Cup (2012, 2018) in two spells with Chelsea.
Brazil international Luiz, who also won the Europa League (2013, 2019), spent two years at Paris Saint-Germain, where he played under Arsenal manager Unai Emery after joining the French club in 2014 before returning to Stamford Bridge.
