Aston Villa will force Arsenal to pay as much as £50 million for Luiz

Arsenal remains keen on signing Douglas Luiz, as Aston Villa appears open to selling him this summer.

Two summers ago, Villa rejected at least two bids from the Gunners for Luiz, deeming them insufficient.

Since then, Luiz has stayed with Villa and played a key role in helping Unai Emery’s team qualify for the Champions League.

Despite that achievement, Villa seems willing to consider his departure, with multiple reports suggesting he could leave this summer.

Mikel Arteta remains interested in working with the Brazilian midfielder, but Arsenal faces competition from Juventus, who are also eager to sign him.

As more clubs vie for his signature, Villa has set a substantial valuation for Luiz. According to a report on Football Insider, they aim to sell him for £50 million.

The midfielder has gained more experience since Arsenal’s initial interest two seasons ago, meaning the Gunners will likely have to pay a higher fee to secure his services.

Just Arsenal Opinion

£50 million is not such a big fee for Luiz, considering how inflated the transfer market is now, and we expect the Villans to earn close to that fee when he finally leaves.

If he is a key target for us and we are sure he will be a starter, then we have to work to sign him.


So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. £50m is not much in todays market, particularly for a proven PL performer

    seems Douglas Luiz provides a great balance of rock solid defence and attacking output

    the figures quoted for both Onana and Palhinha are higher than the £50m, and Guimereas is £100m mark (not convinced twice as good as Luiz)

    after genuine bids for Luiz two summers ago (not just paper talk) it seems strange for Arsenal to let Luiz pass us by now when if anything he has further strengthened, and we desperately need to start our defensive midfield rebuild, seems a perfect fit, at the perfect time and a very reasonable price????

  2. Arteta wanted Luiz but he may have changed his mind because 50 mil seems cheap. Juventus cant afford him, unless they sell.

        1. it is what you put, a direct quote – but i accept that is not what you meant

          if you meant to question why Edu/Arteta don’t seem interested in Douglas Luiz when fee is £50m (and I agree that seem a good/low price) then I am asking myself the same question?

          we were in for him 2 years ago for £25m with one year on his contract, 2 years on his reputation is even better and in todays market £50m for a midfielder of this calibre PL proven seems a snip, e.g. Onana and Palhinha are more and not as good in my view

          great, so that is cleared up, we actually agree
