Some Arsenal fans bemoan reports Luiz is set to leave club this summer

Some Arsenal fans have been bemoaning the latest news over David Luiz after it emerged the defender is set to depart the club this season.

However, this campaign has been marred by injuries with the player more recently missing out on the crucial Europa League tie versus Villarreal due to a hamstring injury.
