Summer signing David Luiz believes that Gilberto Silva is the best Brazilian player to ever play for Premier League giants Arsenal.
The new Arsenal signing made this known in his latest interview with the club’s official website.
David Luiz was speaking ahead of the Premier League clash with Burnley.
Arsenal will host Burnley in the first Premier League game on Saturday.
According to him, Gilberto Silva is one of the best Brazilian players to wear the Arsenal shirt if not the best.
The Brazilian center-back is targeting the same kind of impact made by Gilberto Silva at Arsenal.
Gilberto Silva was a key member of the Arsenal squad that went through the season without a single defeat.
On his part, new signing David Luiz would be hoping to make his debut for the Gunners against Burnley on the back of his controversial move to the club this summer.
Arsenal made their sixth and final signing of the summer when they paid £8m to sign David Luiz from London rivals Chelsea.
The Brazilian defender spent seven years at Stamford Bridge over two spells with a two-year stay at French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in between his two Chelsea spells.
