Chelsea defender David Luiz is expected to join fellow London outfit Arsenal before the transfer window ends later today according to Sky Sports.
The Brazilian international centre back was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in January 2018 and the latest transfer news involving the Gunners and the player has escalated quickly in a matter of days.
David Luiz was expected to be a free agent at Chelsea but the Blues moved quickly to tie him down to a two-year deal just before the end of last season.
The 32-year-old is expected to join Arsenal for a fee believed to be around £8m.

The UK Mirror has revealed the real reason behind his imminent transfer from Chelsea to Arsenal.
It was revealed that David Luiz is keen to leave Stamford Bridge after becoming the fourth choice centre back under new manager Frank Lampard.
He has not been involved with the Chelsea first-team like he would have liked since Frank Lampard became the Blues boss this summer.
David Luiz is behind the trio of Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen in the centre back pecking order at Chelsea at the moment.
He was a mainstay of the Chelsea team under Maurizio Sarri last season.
