Arsenal urged to pursue their interest in Aston Villa man

Kevin Campbell is convinced Douglas Luiz would be a top player for Arsenal if he joined the Gunners.

The Brazilian is one of the midfielders who have been linked with a move to the Emirates in recent months.

The Aston Villa man has impressed since he joined the Midlands club from Manchester City.

Mohamed Elneny is likely to leave Arsenal at the end of this season and the Gunners should look to replace the Egyptian.

This has opened the door for Luiz to move to London as the next top midfielder Mikel Arteta signs.

His performances for the Villans have impressed Campbell and believes he would be a good signing for the top-four spot chasers.

The former Arsenal man tells Football Insider: “He’s done excellently at Aston Villa. He’s playing even better now that Steven Gerrard has got hold of him – which is no surprise.

“I think clubs like Arsenal have to be looking at the likes of Douglas Luiz. He’s young, there’s plenty of room for growth, and he’s experienced in the Premier League.

“I think it would be a brilliant move.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Luiz has been the envy of some top clubs in England and that shows he is a genuinely top talent.

The Brazilian is still just 23, which means he is an ideal signing for the Gunners and would only get better with age.

Villa is an ambitious club and would not want to lose such a key player.

This means Arsenal has to be prepared to pay a good transfer fee before they can sign their man.

  1. A very decent player who will be an important cog in the Villa side under Gerrard who will be reluctant to consider letting him go.With the proceeds of the Grealish sale in hand Villa are unlikely to be short of cash.The more I see of Grealish, the more I realise how much of a premium Man City paid.

    1. I would think Yves Bisdoumma is a better fit to arsenal’s midfield requirements than D.Louis. Nt sure why our team dont see this obvious missing link. Arsenal should go for Yves before Villa snatch him!. He will stabilise our midfield & we can have meaningful competition between him & Sambi. We should then let go Xhaka! Yves has premier league experience already.

  2. I believe with the introduction of Coutinho and Gerrard’s plan for the summer, they’ll let Douglas Luiz leave, would be cool if he joins us this January 😁,

    1. If anything I think Coutinho’s arrival makes it less likely that Villa sells Luiz. Coutinho is a clear indication that they still think they can get something out of the season so dumping their best DM wouldn’t make much sense, especially since they dont need the money

  3. I would prefer if the reports of Edu’s interest in Bruno Guimaraes were true a recent interview the player (himself) said that Edu has been in contact with his agent (Kia) but no offers have been made.

    1. very apt point Siamois, as it appears as if the most important component of any Arsenal acquisition, during Edu/MA’s tenures, is the name of the player in question’s agent…since Bruno is represented by the one and only Kia, the chances of him plying his trade at the Emirates go up exponentially

  4. According to Sky news, Villa are interested in Bousuma which could perhaps suggest a possible move for Luiz?Either would be a material upgrade on Xhaka imo.

    1. Bissouma to Aston Villa would be disastrous for Bissouma, Brighton have a better play style than Aston Villa,
      I doubt Bissouma would take the offer, sounds too poor,

  5. I would go in for Guimaraes first and if that doesnt work out try for Louis. Either way, we really need to sign someone this window.
