Arsenal makes it a must to sign Aston Villa star in January

Arsenal has identified Douglas Luiz as their top priority signing for the upcoming January transfer window. The Brazilian midfielder has been on Arsenal’s radar for several months, with manager Mikel Arteta expressing a strong interest in acquiring his services.

Arsenal came close to securing the signing of Luiz in the previous season, but Aston Villa rejected multiple bids for the player’s signature. Despite the Brazilian extending his contract until 2026 with Villa, Arsenal remains determined to bring him to North London.

According to a report from Football Insider, Arsenal is eager to sign the former Manchester City player, and they are prepared to make a concerted effort to secure his transfer in the January window. While Villa, under the management of Unai Emery, is performing well and is an ambitious club, Arsenal is resolute in its pursuit of Luiz and will make every effort to finalise the deal by the end of the year.

Just Arsenal Opinion

With Thomas Partey continuing to suffer, we need to add a new man to our group as soon as possible to improve our options.

Luiz is a top midfielder and will fit into our style of play almost seamlessly.

But he will not come cheap if we force Aston Villa to cash in on him.

  1. The Footballer insider is right he would slide in Arsenal team seamlessly, he has a little nastiness and physicality about him, to match the most physical team.

    I say spend the extra quid and bring him in.

  2. But why didn’t Arsenal sign Douglas Luiz last winter window when he was easily available. And would have been less financially costly to sign to replace the then injured Mohamed Elneny at that time.
    Aston Villa reportedly wanted £40m from Arsenal before they will allow him leave to them.
    But Arsenal were not ready to pay even £35m to A Villa to get his signature. But the £25-27m which they offered Villa to sign him and which they turned down.
    If it is true that Arsenal wants Luiz again but this time In the upcoming January transfer window. But would Unai Emery’s managed Aston Villa team allow him to leave Villa mid-season to us? But if he does eventually agreed to allow him to leave to Arsenal. But at what cost price will his leaving cost Arsenal?
    As Arsenal have Partey, Jorginho and Elneny in their holding midfield ranks. Would they still need to sign Douglas Luiz in the next winter window?
    I think they might need to sign him since he will be an upgrade to Elneny and Jorginho. But if Arteta will allow one of the duo of Elneny and Jorginho to move so as to accommodate the seemingly arrival of Luiz to the team. More so, as the end could justify the means if Aesenal signed Luiz.
    Alternatively, if Arsenal didn’t/ couldn’t sign Luiz next January window, would he likes/wants to convert Karl Havertz to a defensive holding midfielder? Since Karl has shown at our last Newcastle match he has what it takes to be a holding midfielder when he escaped getting a red card after the hard tackle he applied.
    Nevertheless, I think Arteta can/should convert Havertz to a Dmf. And have Arsenal save the money that they will use to sign a new Dmf next January window for their next summer incomings.

    1. One reckless tackle doesn’t make Kai a good DM.. He is too sluggish, doesn’t seem to read the game well, doesn’t apply himself anywhere close enough to the requisite level.. Actually by now it’s clear Kai is a major flop who basically Coast through games with little or no impact…

      1. Bobo your so right when you say He is too sluggish, doesn’t seem to read the game well, doesn’t apply himself anywhere close enough to the requisite level..

  3. If Ruben Neves desires to come back to England as widely reported, he’d be an easier, but equally effective, target for Arsenal. It’s difficult to see us able to prise Luiz from
    Villa who are nursing their own footballing ambitions.

  4. Can’t see this happening in Jan. I would love to get him in though because we could put Rice back in his best position at 6 And it sorts out our Partey and our Havertz problems

  5. I would consider arsenal bringing in D Luiz if Aston villa are willing to sell him at £55 to £65 million considering Chelsea bought three midfielders worth about £270m Luiz would be a steal, the midfield of Declan Rice, Martin Odegaard and D Luiz will be by far stronger than a midfield of Ezo,Caicedo and Gallagher.

  6. Gallagher is a very average player and Luiz is inferior to Partey who is essential in our cause to win the League.An overhaul of our midfield will no doubt take place at the end of the season, when Jorjinho, Elneny and the injury stricken TP may well depart.

  7. Luiz too good for Arsenal,he will stay at a proper club with a brilliant manager who has improved him no end.Villa wont let him go unless its over 100 million,not a chance….
