David Luiz, 33, is set to be offered a new contract extension as Mikel Arteta is impressed by his influence at Arsenal.
The Brazilian defender was offered a twelve-month contract in the summer and there was speculation he would move on at the end of this season.
According to reports, Arteta is a big fan of Luiz’s performances on and off the field and described the 33-year-old as a key figure in the dressing room.
“He knows the things that he’s really good at and the things where there is still room for improvement. He’s a really honest man with himself. He’s won everything and it’s a joy to work with him,” said the Spanish manager.
Arteta hopes that Luiz’s experience and maturity can influence his younger teammates.
