Representatives of David Lewis are negotiating with an MLS club

Representatives of David Lewis began to voice all potential suitors for next season, as an MLS club showed significant interest in the Arsenal defender.

The 34-year-old’s current contract expires at the end of the season and he is now assessing his options before a possible free transfer away from north London. Its representatives bear his name in clubs around the world and it seems that he may have found an exciting destination.

According to CBS, an unnamed MLS club has been in talks with Lewis’ agent for a potential move to the United States, although the deal seems complicated due to the size of his high salaries.

The Brazilian star earns about 140,000 dollars a week for Arsenal, almost completely calculating it from the transition to MLS. He can be signed and registered as a specific player, which will allow him to avoid salary restrictions, but nevertheless, he may be forced to undertake further salary reductions by the interested party.

Louise may not be so keen to cut her pay again after doing so to win a second season with the Gunners last summer. He originally arrived at the club as a £ 8 million transfer from Chelsea in 2019 and signed a one-year deal with an option to extend for another season.

He has reduced his pay claims to secure his second campaign in the Emirates, but there are no signs of a new deal on the horizon for the former Paris Saint-Germain star.

Luis remained an important figure in the Arsenal squad, making 20 league appearances during that campaign and scoring one goal. However, fitness problems plagued his second season at the club and he suffered another failure.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta will have to do without the central defender for his rematch of the Europa League semi-final against Villarreal, after the defender was forced with a tendon injury in a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United at the weekend.
