The Brazilian defender joined the Gunners from Chelsea before the 2019/2020 season, but has endured a tough campaign in North London.

Luiz and his defensive partners have often been criticised this season as the Gunners went through a tough spell under former manager Unai Emery.

However, the defender has now revealed he already held talks with his former club Benfica about a possible return.

"I have already spoken with Vieira. It will happen if the President permits it and fans want me back," Luiz was quoted as saying by Portuguese outlet Record.

"To be able to wear that jersey again and enter the stadium is worth more than many trophies.

"Benfica doesn’t deserve me to come back without helping."
