Arsenal are another club looking to strengthen their squad ahead of next season,with the current premier league season yet to be decided.

Arsenal will back Mikel Arteta to sign some players that will help the club to contend for silverware next season,with the gunners already identifying possible targets.

Due to the Corona virus outbreak,which have had a devastating effect on football,clubs are expected not to spend too much in transfers in the summer and Arsenal have expressed interest in some high profile players.

But according to reports,David Luiz’s recent performances could give Mikel Arteta a headache as the Arsenal boss prepares for this summer’s transfer window.

Many thought that the Spaniard would focus on strengthening his defence when the window opens with the likes of Luiz, Sead Kolasinac and Shkodran Mustafi appearing to be prone to errors.

William Saliba will return to the Emirates with the youngster having been on loan at Saint Etienne since signing from the French outfit last summer.

Though Arteta may now have a rethink with Luiz having impressed in recent weeks, being named man of the match as Arsenal beat Manchester city on Saturday to reach the FA Cup final.

Luiz has shown a new level of maturity since an individual error that cost the Gunners a goal and a foul that earned City a penalty and himself a red card in the Premier League clash on June 17.

Arteta may be left wondering if he needs to splash the cash defensively given Arsenal’s recent form in the back line with Luiz having played a key role.

On Luiz, Arteta said: "This is part of football, you can go down but I didn't have any doubts about David's reaction.

"He held his hands up after that City game and he didn't have to do that because we all make mistakes.

“The way he has been training and helping others has been phenomenal and I am delighted that people can now see this side of him as well and praise him because he deserves it.

"He has won everything in different countries so he brings that experience with him. Not only that but I want him to perform on the pitch and he is doing that again in a really good way and I'm really happy for him today.

"David doesn't need a lot of management. What he needs is that we trust him and we don't doubt what he can do.

"The best way to do that is to make him play. He can say that throughout his career he has had some difficult moments and some incredible moments, but big athletes go through those moments and I'm happy that he's at the level he's playing now".
