Arsenal is in a four-horse race to sign Brazilian midfielder

Arsenal is looking to add Douglas Luiz to their squad before this transfer window closes.

The Aston Villa man has become one of the most recognisable players in the Premier League in his position.

Villa wants him to stay, but that has not stopped the top European sides from circling.

The Daily Mail reports that his latest suitor is Atletico Madrid. However, the Spanish side will have to see off competition from Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle to win the race.

The Villans have started this season poorly and that could give him a reason to leave to join a bigger club.

Arsenal has just suffered a setback in their campaign after Mohamed Elneny was ruled out of action for some time because of injury.

Thomas Partey has already missed a game through injury. Adding Luiz to their group will make it much stronger.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Luiz has spent most of his career in the Premier League and that should help him thrive at the Emirates.

But the competition from other clubs could make it hard for us to sign the former Manchester City man.

If we can meet Villa’s asking price, our Brazilian players and Edu could convince him to join them in London.

  1. Just what we need now!!
    Market value as per Transfermarkt is 34 million pounds and his contract expires in a year.

    1. I read 15m this morning as an acceptable offer.

      This is not the first time we have been linked with him as well and he also spent some time with Man City so if Arteta does rate him, it should be us with the advantage.

      Happy for the win yesterday and very impressed with Sambi.


    Sometimes it may not be too late to learn or taught lessons when its too late.

    Arsenal is not Brazil mr Edu;

    Get resources to do the next before letting go the one at hand as human & resource are different mr Arteta;

    Buying may not be the answer but the resources must be reliable to equal task ahead,which means buying is necessary if otherwise as, mr kroenke;

    God of football works always but in favor of those upright and does the right thing,either at start, midle, end or through out,though sequel to many factors.

    We may not have the financial muscle to own clubs kroenke, but we fans supporte you in that buying just like other human/things are being established through mankind.

    Overall, 1 day and hours to go for TRANSFERS, board, what is the fate?

  3. Its already late because the guy has gone to Atletico Madrid….. So its better we look for another player….

  4. Why is nobody talking about frenkie dejong @Barcelona.

    Barcelona wants to sell and Dude wants to leave but with his differed wages payed.

    Considering the good momentum currently @Arsenal this season and high hopes , Chelsea seems to be having crisis as well as Man united , Liverpool is shaking cuz of injury which leaves us to City and Tottenham who has dropped 2points already .

    Arsenal need a proven defensive 4 who can actually had real value to the team moving forward

    Frenkie Dejing tick the box 100%

    A Sean long loan with obligation to buy @7m pounds , Barca will sell.

    Good salary to entice dejong this last hour of the window will also convince him to join Arsenal.

    Dude is 24years and a long term replacement for partey and Elneny

    Partey is 29 or 30+ and he’s African , those injuries is a mssg and mo-Eleny is 31+

    Even with a fully fit Thomas partey , Dejong will start.

    1. £75m with obligation to buy after a season long loan.

      Or find a way to negotiate his differed wages of £17m

      Take him on a season long loan with obligation to buy at the end of the season for £60m and agree to pay his differed wages with Barcelona and the player €15m spread over years of his contract

      I’m confident Dejong will join Arsenal.

      1. Well Henry
        This is exactly my point.

        Of all the midfielders, Frankie de joong tick all the boxes.
        A do like Savic but Frankie de joong is the real deal, I said on another thread Edu need to start thinking out of the box.

        Frankie de joong is the midfielder that improve Arsenal instantly.

        I like the plan of action you envision to take him to the Emirates too

  5. Wouldn’t surprise me if this happened
    Jesus & Luiz were both chatting after tonight’s game with their hands over their mouths so no one could get a gist of what they were saying
    Watch this space 😉

  6. Good signing. Not bad for a kind of panic buy. He’d be the 2nd best CDM at the club from the get-go, and would have re-sale value as well. Hoping this one can get across the line.
