Arsenal defender David Luiz has plenty of contract offers, should he leave the club at the end of the season.



The Brazilian has returned to training after a minor knee surgery, and he is likely to feature in the upcoming games.

His current deal with the club expires in June and so far, the hierarchy have yet to open a dialogue over a contract extension.

According to Standard Sport, Luiz is relaxed over his situation, and is not worried about the prospect of leaving the Gunners.

The 34-year-old reportedly has multiple contract offers on the table, but he could favour a return to Benfica this summer.

Benfica are open to the prospect of re-signing Luiz, who made 132 appearances for them between 2006 and 2011.

However, the centre-back will have to take a significant pay-cut on his wages in order to rejoin the Portuguese giants.

Luiz has made 29 appearances for the Gunners in all competitions this term. Overall, he has represented the club on 72 occasions.
