David Luiz is widely spoken about as having a big influence in the Arsenal dressing room and his leadership is important to the squad, but he ’s starting to get older and it would make sense to give his playing time to someone like William Saliba. Luiz is out of contract in the summer and there’s still no sign of Serie A side Lazio and MLS have been touted as possible destinations, but this could also be a tactic to force Arsenal to make a decision. They state that he currently earns around 0k a week at Arsenal so he would surely need to take a giant pay cut to secure an extension, and it now looks like

Luiz's current terms at Arsenal expire at the end of the season and there is so far no clarity as to whether the veteran center back will be offered a third year with the Gunners. He is much admired by Mikel Arteta for his on and off-field leadership qualities but injuries have hamstrung him this season.

Meanwhile those close to the player have begun the process of finding potential destinations for him next season. Among those who have been offered Luiz's services is a club in MLS, sources told CBS Sports, but the 34-year-old's salary means that they viewed a move for him as unlikely even as a designated player, who would not count against the league's salary cap.

David Luiz is already opening an exit door at Arsenal , as he approaches the final 12 months of his contract , with the Brazilian admitting that he hopes to retire on the books at Benfica. Luiz is now looking to help get Arsenal back on the trophy trail, having linked up with the Gunners in the summer of 2019. He is fully committed to that cause, with a two-year deal penned, but is also looking to the future at 33 years of age. The South American is prepared to admit that he wants to head back to Estadio da Luz at some stage, with his ambition being to hang up his boots in Portugal.

David Luiz earns around £100k per week . It is said he 'll have to take a substantial pay cut to stay at Arsenal . According to James Benge of CBS Sports, David Luiz 's representatives have started to explore options for the centre-back as his Arsenal contract expires in June. However, the Brazilian's salary demands might complicate the negotiations over a move. David Luiz earns around £100k per week (other sources say he pockets £120k a week ) after accepting a pay cut last summer to get a contract extension with the Gunners .

Luiz has also been linked with a move to Serie A club Lazio and is understood to earn around $140,000 a week at Arsenal. The Brazilian took a pay cut nearly a year ago to secure a second season at the Emirates Stadium having arrived from Chelsea for $11.1million in the summer of 2019, signing a one year deal with the option for a further 12 months.

Currently sidelined with a hamstring injury after having undergone knee surgery in early April, Luiz is aiming to feature again for the Gunners this season and Arsenal are hopeful that the injury will not be so serious as to rule him out for the remainder of the campaign.

"He felt something in his hamstring so it's not good news," manager Mikel Arteta said of the injury to Luiz. "He's put such a shift to be back with the team for the last few weeks after the knee surgery and it's a real shame."

Arsenal currently have center-backs Gabriel, Pablo Mari, Rob Holding and Calum Chambers on the books for next season, though the latter has predominantly been used as a right-back in recent weeks.

Young loanees Konstantinos Mavropanos and William Saliba will also be returning to the Gunners with sources indicating that Arteta plans to give the latter a chance to win his place in the first team setup over pre-season. Saliba was signed for $37.5million and immediately loaned back to Saint-Etienne in the summer of 2019 before spending the second half of this season on loan at fellow Ligue 1 club Nice where he has impressed with regular game time.
