Arsenal consider allowing David Luiz to come off contract

Arsenal considering allowing David Luiz to come off contract this summer.

The Brazilian has made 16 starts for the Gunners this season and was enjoying a resurgence in the team before he was forced to undergo knee surgery this month, with Mikel Arteta instead calling upon Rob Holding, Pablo Mari and Gabriel Magalhaes.

Football.London says while he is valued as an experienced member of the Spaniard's squad, the club are not currently looking to agree new terms with him.

With William Saliba and Konstantinos Mavropanos both returning from loans at Nice and Stuttgart respectively, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta feels he has enough options at centre-back.

He is particularly keen to give more first-team opportunities to Saliba, it says, who endured a tough start to his Arsenal career after failing to make a single first-team appearance at the beginning of this campaign.
