David Luiz leaves Chelsea for Arsenal in £8m deal

In further breaking news regarding Arsenal, meanwhile, as confirmed by the ever-reliable David Ornstein a short time ago, Everton have struck a deal with the capital giants over the signing of Alex Iwobi.

The Daily Mail reports that Celtic had finalised the deal allowing Kieran Tierney to join Arsenal in a £25 million move, but were not prepared to lsoe a second key man.

But Smith, 56, fears for his injury record while Nicholas, 57, - who played for both clubs - believes the Gunners have shelled out more than the Scotland worldwide is worth. "He is a well known player and adds to our defensive strength", the Spaniard said on the club's official website.

Tierney is very similar to Robertson. I'm delighted to be here.

Tierney, who came up through Celtic's youth ranks and helped the Scottish club seal a domestic treble last season, is Arsenal's fifth recruit of the transfer window. People need to know that as well.

Arsenal has left Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac out of the squad for its English Premier League season opener due to ongoing "security incidents", the London club said. "I feel this is a great opportunity for me".

Tierney, 22, has been on Arsenal's radar for months now, as manager Unai Emery sought to strengthen the left-back area in his squad.

The deal comes after lengthy negotiations between Arsenal and Celtic. However, he played a major part in Arsenal's journey to the Europa League final as he featured in seven games providing one assist.

The left-back, who will wear the number three shirt, passed a medical in London on Thursday and could make his debut against Newcastle on Sunday. The 20-year-old striker Eddie Nketiah has also completed a loan move to Leeds United.
