Arsenal fans want West Ham star at the Emirates, after Tweet about David Luiz

West Ham United star Declan Rice put London rivalry aside to applaud Arsenal defender David Luiz for his display in the Gunners’ FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester City on Saturday – and Arsenal fans have responded.

Luiz, 33, has been in disappointing form for Arsenal since his move from Chelsea – being the source of criticism for supporters since his move to the Emirates. Many were unimpressed when he was handed a new one-year deal.

However, the former Paris Saint-Germain star was arguably Arsenal’s best player – other than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – against City at Wembley, as the Gunners beat City 2-0. Aubameyang netted both goals.

Despite West Ham and Arsenal renowned for having a degree of rivalry given both are from London, Rice applauded the Brazilian ace on Twitter as the apprentice beat the master – with Mikel Arteta getting one over Pep Guardiola.

Rice’s future could change hands this summer. Though the England international seems committed to the Hammers, ESPN claim Chelsea are interested in the £70million-rated midfielder – who left Chelsea for West Ham as a trainee.

Paul Merson, meanwhile, recently told Sky Sports that Arsenal should be considering the versatile midfielder who scored a stunning 25-yard effort against Watford on Friday: “I don’t know why Arsenal aren’t looking at Rice.”

Indeed, Arsenal fans responded to Rice’s Tweet about Luiz, and many have urged the London-born England ace to consider a move across London and join Arteta’s side in the coming months.
