Man City willing to push Arsenal all the way to sign midfielder

Manchester City wants to re-sign Douglas Luiz, which means they will compete with Arsenal to sign the Brazilian at the end of this season.

Luiz has been one of the finest midfielders in England this term, as his improved performance has helped Aston Villa maintain a place in the Premier League’s top four.

Luiz was on the books of City earlier in his career, but they did not consider him good enough and sold him to Villa with a buy-back clause.

That clause has since expired, but the Citizens have been impressed by how he has played this term and want to add him to their group.

Football Insider says they want him to return to the Etihad and will be the main challengers to Arsenal for his signature.

The Gunners have been following Luiz since 2022 and came very close to signing him that summer, but they failed to meet Villa’s asking price.

As Villa pushes to secure a spot in the Champions League, Luiz will be a key player for them in the coming weeks, and in the summer, his future will be decided.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Luiz has been fantastic in the Premier League this term, and we will be a better team if he joins us.

He might want to play for a new club and reject City’s approach for his signature to join us.

  1. Luiz, good player, Villa would ask for a ridiculous amount of money and I think there are better options out there anyway.

    Off Topic: Timber back in training is great news and I think he should be ready for the start of April, might even make the bench against Man City.

  2. They can both push all they like but neither will sign him he won’t be leaving Aston Villa
    This is just a load of journos trying to stir things up again that’s because they have nothing better to do

  3. The need for a player like Douglas Luiz would be welcome but am afraid he will be price out of the market

  4. Who writes this tosh? Very poor journalism Get your facts right It was nothing to do with “not considering him good enough”! Pep wanted to keep him but couldn’t get a work permit at the time When the buy back clause came around It was more about timing City were well stocked with world class players at the time at their peaks in his positions and and there was no room for Luiz in the squad They didnt need him Now KDB is probably leaving and their over reliance on Rodri has been exposed so things have changed
