BBC Sport journalist David Ornstein claims that Chelsea’s David Luiz and Celtic’s Kieran Tierney are both set for medicals at Arsenal.

L’Equipe, Daily Mail and The Telegraph are among the outlets reporting that Luiz has took action yesterday – by missing training – to push for a transfer across London to be reunited with Unai Emery.

Luiz signed a new two-year deal in May upon the expiry of his previous contract with Chelsea unable to sign reinforcements this summer.

But it seems the 32-year-old has had a change of heart and wishes to leave Stamford Bridge for Arsenal.

Tierney, meanwhile, has been a target for the Gunners throughout the summer, but the north London side have struggled to reach an agreement with the Scottish champions.

However, Ornstein now brings more positive news for Arsenal fans as he claims Tierney and Luiz are set for medicals ahead of the 5pm deadline today.

Ornstein wrote on Twitter: “Arsenal have reached an agreement with Chelsea to sign centre-back David Luiz for £8m. 32yo Brazil international will sign a 2yr contract.

“Deal for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney 5yrs, fee £25m. Medicals today ahead of putting pen to paper before 5pm deadline #AFC #CFC #CelticFc”
