Pundit gives Arsenal hope of signing Douglas Luiz “I know for a fact”

Paul Robinson, the ex-Englamd keeper, has given hope to Douglas Luiz’s potential move to Arsenal. Following Villa’s admission of a £119.6 million loss from their finances last year, many have speculated that they may need to sell some of their key players in the summer to balance their books. This could help them avoid getting into problems with Premier League profit and sustainability rules.

Paul Robinson has offered Arsenal some encouragement in their pursuit of Douglas Luiz. The former Tottenham Hotspur player believes Villa may need to qualify for Champions League football to keep the Brazilian international. Even if they qualify for the Champions League, the need to balance their books may force them to cash in on Luiz. So Arsenal has a good chance of signing Luiz, which Robinson knows Villans will not be happy about.

“Their books are worrying,” Robinson told the Inside Track podcast. “From a Villa point of view, if they don’t get Champions League football, the likes of Jacob Ramsey and Douglas Luiz could want to leave.

“I know for a fact that Arsenal are looking at Luiz.

“If Villa were in a situation where they had to balance the books, Ramsey and Luiz bring you £100million between them at least – there’s your books balanced.

“Fans won’t want to hear that though.”

The chance of a Douglas Luiz transfer is intriguing. However, given suggestions that he could be available for £100 million or more, the transfer may be difficult to complete. Other agreements, such as those for a striker and a goalkeeper, are also expected, so Arsenal is unlikely to authorise a £100 million plus deal for just one player.

  1. How have you drawn to the conclusion Luiz is worth £100 million lol read what you write. Doh

    ‘Ramsey and Luiz bring you £100million between them’

    This implies he is worth £50 million

    1. Jay it could also imply one is worth £70 million and the other £30 million, but you make a good point.

  2. Anything in the region of 50 – 60m would be good business for Arsenal. Luiz has vital PL experience, and his age says he still has quite a few more years of top-class football in him

  3. We can give them ESR for 35M and top-up 50M for Luiz….although with financial objectives they may want cash.
