After leaving Man City to join Aston Villa, Douglas Luiz developed strongly and became one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League.
In the 2022 summer transfer window, Arsenal came close to signing him. But Aston Villa rejected a series of offers from the North London representative even though he had entered the final year of his contract. After that, the Premier League club successfully convinced the 25-year-old midfielder to sign a new contract.
However, Arsenal has not yet given up on this goal.
In the context of Thomas Partey being frequently injured and likely to leave when the season ends, coach Mikel Arteta is expected to reconnect with Luiz and find a way to bring him to the Emirates in January.
This deal faces many difficulties as Villa also needs important factors to maintain hopes of participating in the Champions League next season. However, according to sources from Team Talk, If the Gunners agree to put 60 million pounds on the negotiating table, the problem will be resolved.
