Arsenal sign Luiz from rivals Chelsea

So he wonders why Unai Emery has brought the Spain Under-21 star in.

Most of the excitement with Gunners fans lies at the feet of Pepe, who joined in a stunning £72million move from Lille.

Those two new signings took the total value of Arsenal transfer signings for this window to £155 million making them the largest spenders in the Premier League this time around.

David Luiz made the shocking deadline day jump from Chelsea to Arsenal in the Premier League, and his manager Frank Lampard has now revealed why.

The Gunners boss acknowledged this, saying: "David has huge experience and I look forward to working with him again".

"He is a well-known player and adds to our defensive strength".

And Mourinho is a big fan of the winger, who he watched live a lot last season.

Bolingoli had already been filling in for Tierney this season while the Scotland left back recovered from hernia surgery but Lennon also lost Emilio Izaguirre in the summer and will look to find another player for the position.

"I think he is potentially a very good signing for Arsenal". Some players maybe they can play less with that situation and can leave. When you add in the fact that we have players like Joe Willock, who was vast in pre-season, and Reiss Nelson pushing for first team football, a lot of the usual first team regulars must be fearing for their place. I have confidence he will do well.

"Some supporters can believe in or like one player more than another player, that's normal".

"The club did everything to get the best players to to make our squad stronger", Emery said on Friday.

Emery wants to include Luiz in his squad for Arsenal's first league game of the season against Newcastle on Sunday but must wait for worldwide clearance.

"He is finding it hard to get in the squad at the minute but it's very early days and once the season goes on you will imagine Scott will make a contribution", said Lennon, whose side travel to Motherwell on Saturday.

"It's hard", he said when asked if Luiz would be considered.

"Him not training was a decision I made as I felt that is what I made at the time".
