    Sky Sports are reporting that David Luiz is set to leave Arsenal in the summer, with the Brazilian's contract due to end and no talks over a renewal having been planned.

    Amid the coronavirus pandemic, clubs and players have until June 23 to agree contract extensions, with those whose deals are expiring able to play on beyond June 30 with short-term renewals.

    Chelsea to cash in on Boga

    Chelsea are in advanced talks with Serie A side Sassuolo, which would see them earn an undisclosed one-off fee and exchange their buyback clause to a first option on a future sale of ex-youth academy star Jeremie Boga.

    The Blues are not expected to take up that option, however, with the Ivorian in demand at some of Serie A’s top clubs.

    Discussions on video conference calls between the two clubs had initially mentioned a 50 per cent sell-on clause for Boga, who is attracting attention from the likes of Napoli and Roma, but Chelsea will now settle for the one-off fee instead.

    Goal has also learned that Juventus are following the developments but he isn't one of their top priorities.
