Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit has claimed that former club Chelsea will not regret selling David Luiz to the Gunners.

"The fact that David Luiz left the club the way he did tells me that Lampard told him he was not going to feature regularly in his team," Petit told Paddy Power .



The Brazilian defender made a deadline day switch to the Emirates after Chelsea boss Frank Lampard made it clear he was not part of first-team plans.



Arsenal boss Unai Emery turned to Luiz to help address the clubs defensive problems, after they worked together at PSG.

Speaking of the 18-year-old full-back, Luiz said: "He is a young player, he's talented and everyone speaks very well about him, everyone is excited because they know he has the potential to become a fantastic player soon and in the future.

Luiz signed for a relatively modest £8 million fee and provides Arsenal with a wealth of European and International experience.

Luiz was on the bench for Arsenal's opening Premier League win over Newcastle , but is expected to make his debut for the club soon.
