David Luiz

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been told to make new signing David Luiz his captain by club legend Nigel Winterburn.

The former Arsenal left-back advised Unai Emery to make David Luiz his captain in a chat with Sportingbet.

According to him, Brazilian centre back David Luiz has all the qualities required for the role of club skipper.

Arsenal are looking for a new captain on the back of the exit of Laurent Koscielny.

The French defender forced his exit to French Ligue 1 club Bordeaux.

The former French champions paid €5m for Laurent Koscielny who has signed a three-year deal.

David Luiz was brought in as the direct replacement for the aforementioned Koscielny.

The Brazilian international player joined Arsenal from fellow London club Chelsea for £8m.

He has signed a two-year deal with the Gunners until the end of the 2020/21 season.

David Luiz spent seven years at Chelsea over two spells and has decided to move across the capital after new Chelsea manager Frank Lampard relegated him to fourth choice in the center-back pecking order.

The 32-year-old made his debut for the Gunners on Saturday afternoon during the 2-1 win over Burnley.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette scored the goals for Arsenal against the Clarets.
