David Luiz will leave Arsenal this summer after it was revealed that his contract was only for an initial 12-month stay, according to reports.
Luiz moved to London when he joined Chelsea's Gunners in the summer, but he had struggled to improve the porous rear in the early months of the campaign.
The Brazilian international has impressed since Mikel Arteta's appointment in December, and now appears to be at Emirates Stadium.

Paul Ince stated in February that Luiz's performances had improved so much that he played like an "imposter" under Arteta.
Yet, Sky Sports now claim that the Brazilian will leave Arsenal this summer with Luiz & # 39; without a contract next month and without negotiations planned for a new deal & # 39 ;.
It was reported at the time that Luiz had signed an initial two-year contract when he entered into an £ 8 million contract, but the report states that it was actually only for a 12-month stay.
Arsenal are expected to "restrict spending" this summer, but Arteta is "desperate to keep him" at the club, while Luiz is also "looking forward to staying".
