The newcomers in Serie A will not make any further additions, despite reports linking them to the former Arsenal and Chelsea defender
Salernitana sporting director Angelo Fabiani has denied reports that the club are interested in signing David Luiz.
Rumors have it that the Serie A team was ready to offer the 34-year-old football back after leaving Arsenal at the end of last season.
However, Fabiani says the club’s transfer deal has now been completed tthe arrival of former Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery.
What did Fabiani say about Luiz?
Fabiani spoke at a news conference announcing the signing of Ribery on a one-year contract.
The deal with the former France international is seen as a coup for the Campania-based kit, which is back in top Italian flight after a 23-year absence.
“I want to thank Franck’s agent Davide Lippi because he made him understand what it means for Salernitana,” Fabiani said.
Asked if there are more new faces, he added: ‘With Ribery, our transfer window is over. We told each other that we had done enough. Ribery is our last signing, we have signed excellent players. ”
Luiz denies transfer rumors
Luiz himself had earlier gone to social media to deny rumors of an impending transfer.
“Every day a different fake news,” he posted on Instagram. “It is up to us to choose what we want to believe.”
It is suspected that a number of Brazilian parties, including Flamengo, are interested in Luiz, but the defender would rather stay in Europe.
Purpose reported last month that the former club Benfica had talks with the player, while Ligue 1 kit Marseille was also linked with a move.
