Report: Arsenal player could be about to join Eduardo Camavinga's side, set to leave The Emirates on a free
Website Le10Sport claim that Rennes have opened direct talks with Arsenal defender David Luiz. The Brazilian is currently on holiday but it is claimed that Rennes have contacted him directly over a move to the Ligue 1 side. It seems they are ready to head to head with Marseille.
Luiz, 34, has clocked up 73 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal since joining the club in a surprise move from Chelsea in 2019. But he has struggled during his time with The Gunners – and it now appears that he will leave Arsenal. On a free, Luiz is attracting interest from Marseille.
But a new report from Le10Sport claim that Marseille and Jorge Sampaoli face competition from Eduardo Camavinga’s Rennes. The report states that Rennes have spoken to Luiz directly while on holiday and are ready to offer the centre-back a new two-year deal.
Which club is best for Arsenal defender Luiz – Rennes or Marseille?
Both are in Europe next season. What it is probably going to come down to is how long either club offer him contract wise, how much they can afford in wages and which European competition they are in. Rennes have only qualified for the Conference League. Marseille are in the Europa League.
Marseille are certainly the more exciting of the two. Sampaoli in charge, with some proper household names in the squad. But it is unclear the length of contract they are ready to offer Luiz – and a two-year deal from Rennes might offer Luiz security. Marseille is the more exciting option.
