A report has claimed Arsenal are to miss out on Luiz Gustavo.

Luiz Gustavo was claimed last week to be the object of Wolfsburg's affections as they aimed to secure the Brazilian from Bayern Munich.

Now it is being reported in Germany that the defensive midfielder has chosen to sign with the club snubbing both Arsenal and Napoli.

German newspaper Die Welt writes:

"The transfer of the Brazilian Luiz Gustavo from Treble-winners Bayern Munich for Bundesliga rivals Wolfsburg seems perfect.

"According to information from Die Welt the midfielder will go with immediate effect to the Lower Saxony. There the 26-year-old is supposed to get a long-term contract."

The paper add however that Wolfsburg are yet to confirm the news officially.
