David Ornstein has spoken and Kieran Tierney and David Luiz will both be Arsenal players before the close of the transfer window today, providing they pass their medicals.
According to Ornstein, who is viewed as only one-step removed from an official Arsenal announcement, Tierney will sign a five-year deal with Arsenal for a fee of £25m.
His wages are rumoured to be £75kpw.
David Luiz will, astonishingly, cost the club less than what they should receive from Derby for Krystian Bielik.
Arsenal have reached an agreement with Chelsea to sign centre-back David Luiz for £8m. 32yo Brazil international will sign a 2yr contract. Deal for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney 5yrs, fee £25m. Medicals today ahead of putting pen to paper before 5pm deadline #AFC #CFC #CelticFc

Luiz’s deal at Arsenal will take him to 2021, the same length as the contract he signed with Chelsea back in May.
David Luiz has been involved in players getting rid of a manager two seasons in a row. A positive development imo
