    Arsenal have signed Brazilian defender David Luiz from rivals Chelsea.

    The 32 year old made 524 appearances over 13 seasons for the Blues and also spent time with Benfica, PSG and Vitoria.

    Luiz, who has also played 56 times for Brazil, will wear the number 23 shirt at his new club.

    Reports suggest the fee for the defender is in the region of £8m and it follows their £25m deadline day purchase of Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.
