Arsenal are interested in David Luiz.

Fabrizio Romano, who is well versed in the European soccer transfer market, confirmed on social media on Monday (July 31) that “Arsenal have contacted Laya’s representatives and have begun talks regarding his salary. The player prefers Arsenal to Bayern Munich. Discussions are ongoing and Brentford are always looking for £40 million,” the club said, shedding light on the transfer saga.

The Spanish goalkeeper has been on English soil since joining the Blackburn Rovers youth system as a youngster. He was the first-choice goalkeeper in the 2017-18 season, helping the club win promotion from League One to the English Football League Championship (EFL Championship) 토토사이트.

His next stop was Brentford. He joined the club in 2019 for €3.35 million and immediately became their number one. Brentford paid a pittance, but it paid off. He made a name for himself in the 2020-21 season when he helped the club win promotion to the English Premier League (EPL).

On the EPL stage, Raya was just as effective. His quick thinking and reflexes allowed him to make reliable saves. He also has the buildup skills that are essential for a modern goalkeeper. He’s only 27 years old, so he could be a reliable goalkeeper for the next decade.

Since the end of the season, transfer speculation has been rampant. With his contract expiring next summer, it was Brentford’s last chance to cash in on his services. Tottenham Hotspur were the favorites. According to the Daily Mail, “Tottenham are moving closer to signing Laya. They have moved to the front of the race for the player by luring him with a long-term deal. Completing the deal will depend on Spurs’ ability to negotiate.” According to Romano, the two sides had even reached an agreement on personal terms.

However, the deal ultimately stalled. Tottenham brought in Guglielmo Vicario to replace Hugo Lloris, who would have been a costly transfer. That’s when Arsenal made a move for Laya. It’s a bit of a shock considering they already have one of the best goalkeepers in the league in Aaron Ramsdale.

“Arsenal are exploring the possibility of signing Lallana,” reports The Athletic. They want him to compete with Ramsdale for the number one spot.” It’s looking increasingly likely that Laya, who Tottenham were close to signing, could be heading to their North London rivals.
