JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are reportedly interested in bringing back Brazilian defender David Luiz after his contract with Arsenal expired.

The center-back played for PSG for two years from 2014 to 2016 after joining from Chelsea for a fee of £50 million.

Luiz then rejoined Chelsea before moving to Arsenal in 2019 for around £8m.

However, he was released at the end of last season after the Gunners chose not to renew his contract. The 34-year-old defender is also expected to rejoin his former club, Benfica.

English media Metro reported on Wednesday that PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi is still a huge admirer of Luiz, and wants to sign him back to the French club this summer.

The Ligue 1 giants can meet Luiz's wage demands, but the final decision will be left to coach Mauricio Pochettino.

Other French clubs such as Rennes and Marseille are said to be interested in Luiz's services, with Marseille in talks with the defender for a two-year contract.

Luiz has reportedly spoken to Marseille coach Jorge Sampaoli to discuss his move to the club. However, the player does not want to rush in making decisions regarding his future, as reported by Antara.
