Former Chelsea defender David Luiz signed up for the Gunners during the summer transfer window, as he sealed an £8m move to the Emirates Stadium on summer transfer deadline day.

The Brazilian joined Arsenal from arch rivals Chelsea, and won a number of trophies while at the club, including the Champions League, Premier League and Europa League.

Arsenal are yet to win a Premier League title since the Invincibles era, and Luiz has vowed to return the Gunners back to their glory days.

“I still have the hunger to win trophies. I want to win trophies with Arsenal,” Luiz told the club’s official website.

“I want to make this club shine again. This is my goal and I’m not going to stop until I’m doing that. It’s up to me to continue to have this hunger every single day.

“For me, the first thing behind a title-winning team is belief. If you don’t believe and you don’t dream, or believe in that dream, it’s impossible to do it.

“The first thing is you have to dream and then after that you have to study how to do it. Then you need to understand that during this process, you’re going to have some good moments and some difficult moments, but you can never change your mind.

“That’s why I think we can achieve titles this season. We have the opportunity in the Europa League and the FA Cup, and then we want to fight until the end for the top four. We want to start to create an identity for this club. Everybody’s going to understand that it’s going to be hard to play against us.

“After all, if you don’t believe, you will never achieve anything in your life.”
