David Luiz’s future with Arsenal became surprisingly a major talking point, when reports emerged that the Gunners are unlikely to activate the clause to extend Luiz’s stay at the Emirates for another year, after initially signing one-year deal from Chelsea in 2019.

Despite finally establishing himself as a key member under Arsenal’s new manager Mikel Arteta, there’s now a growing uncertainty surrounding his future at the club.

Though he had a shaky start in his Arsenal career, but he has now been able to earn the respect and rave which he surely deserve.

Since Mikel Arteta was appointed as Arsenal’s new manager, David Luiz has being one of the most improved player under the new manager. Luiz has been outstanding on and off the pitch. Standing in as a mentor to the young players while also showcasing his maturity and experience on the pitch.

According to the new revelation, Arsenal and David Luiz are expected to agree on a contract extension for the defender, says agent Kia Joorabchian.

“He’s very happy at Arsenal,” Joorabchian told Sky Sports. “He has an extremely good relationship with both the coach and the sporting director. He has good relationships all throughout the club, right up to the owner. He respects everybody.

“These contract situations, these renewals, if he stays or if he goes… will all sort themselves out when we get back to some kind of ‘new’ normal [after coronavirus].

“David will sit down with Arsenal before the season begins, have his conversations and they will both decide if he will stay or not. That will come before the season starts. The chances are very high [of Luiz being at Arsenal next season].

“There is no desire to leave. But again, we are going to live in a ‘new’ normal, we will have to see what Arsenal’s position will be. But I believe there is a wish from both sides to continue.”
