Deadline day update
One Chelsea star could be on his way to Arsenal if the recent betting odds are anything to go by as a number of shock deals look to be on.
The betting odds are often one way to determine who a club are going to be linked with shortly.
Though, today it looks to be concrete evidence of an Arsenal move for David Luiz on deadline day.
The Brazilian has struggled to see eye to eye with Antonio Conte this season and even fell out with him earlier in the season.
Following that, the player also suffered an injury which kept him out of action for a couple of months.
Though, he could now be on his way to Arsenal after transfer oracle Ornstein tweeted that there are some suggestings they could make a move for Luiz.
The bookies have certainly reacted to this and the player is now evens for a shocking deadline day move.
Arsenal are on the lookout for a central defender before the end of the window and Luiz looks to be one of them.
Roma’s Kostas Manolas is another name that has been linked with the Gunners.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “The clock is ticking but several clubs are still clearly keen to bring in new recruits – and we could be set for a handful of huge arrivals over the coming hours.”
Hearing whispers (nothing concrete) Arsenal have been exploring possibility of signing David Luiz from Chelsea as part of Giroud deal – as per @DavidWoodsStar yesterday – or Roma’s Kostas Manolas. Would be one or other, no idea if it will happen. Defence a clear concern #AFC #CFC

Part of another deal?
Interestingly enough, this comes following the confirmation of Olivier Giroud’s move to Chelsea.
The Frenchman will join the Stamford Bridge side after reports that Arsenal and Antonio Conte’s side reached an agreement.
