    I think sokratis and Luis will complement each other...sokratis is very defensive kinds of player where luiz is quite offensive one

    He gets pumped and fights, good leader, very talented
    Blood rushes to his head and occasionally prone to crazy clearances, and outlandish passes

    Have to say Luiz and Sokratis are a bit tarred with the same brush . . hot Latin temperament. Could work, but Holding would be a calming influence on either.

    Not exactly the most ideal signing but it is what it is, I'd rather Luiz at 8mil than another 30mil+ disaster.

    Stop gap for next summer and hopefully with CL football we can attract a lot better.

    Just hope he plays to a decent level and doesn't mess about, I expect a few mistakes from him still.

    I have to say some on here are exaggerating on Luiz' (lack of) defensive abilities, he ain't running around like a headless chicken as Mustafi ffs :lol:

    Also,he will ease Martinelli's adaptation, being brasilian and portoguese speaker.

    Not a bad free kick taker either

    But even off the bench and midweek it would still be worth having him. 8 mil is such a small gain, and you strengthened one of the two teams that will likely fight for the 4th spot.

    I bet their fans are spewing, love it.

    The outlandish passes might be part of the reason we're doing it. Instead of Xhaka coming back to get it of Leno and getting caught on the half turn, it goes to Luiz, facing forwards, who pings it to Pepe etc.

    8m in today's market is basically a free transfer.

    Great bit of business. He'll keep us ticking over for the next season or 2.

    There's no such thing as a Brazilian language. Brazilians speak Portuguese.

    Can’t wait for the usual pundits to change tune after saying how good he was for Conte and Sarri now he plays for us.

    Expect to see the likes of Carragher and Jenas sticking the boot in all season.

    Very nice deal. Can Chelsea do a Demba Ba to us still? Maybe Luiz has injury and doesn't pass medical, and we have no time to get a replacement?

    Bellerin Sokratis Luiz Tierney should be a solid back 4.
    Maybe holding will take Sokratis spot too.

    Next season, Bellerin Holding and Tierney will be one year more experienced, Saliba joins us, we should sell Sokratis or Luiz and go for a big signing like Upamecano.
