Marseille have completed the signing of Luiz Gustavo from Wolfsburg in a deal believed to be worth €8 million.

All the latest transfer rumours

The midfielder was a transfer target for Arsenal back in 2013 but opted to leave Bayern Munich for their Bundesliga rivals Wolfsburg.

He has gone on to make over 100 Bundesliga appearances for the club, but has now decided to make the move to France and signed a four-year contract with Marseille.

The 29-year-old won a league, cup and Champions League treble during his time at Bayern, adding a DFB-Pokal and DFL-Supercup to his trophy collection while at Wolfsburg.

Gustavo becomes Marseille's third signing of the summer, with Florian Thauvin having completed a permanent switch from Newcastle United and Valere Germain arriving from Monaco.

Rudi Garcia's side finished fifth in Ligue 1 in the 2016-17 campaign but will be hoping to be closer to the likes of Monaco, Nice and PSG in the upcoming season.
