Report – Arsenal plotting another bid for Premier League star

Arsenal will make a new bid for Douglas Luiz in the January transfer window as they become frustrated with the fitness of Thomas Partey.

The Ghanaian has become injury prone, which makes it hard to rely on him for many games.

The Gunners have Mohamed Elneny as a backup option, but injury has also sidelined the Egyptian.

This leaves Albert Sambi Lokonga as the only defensive-minded midfielder in the squad after Mikel Arteta gave Granit Xhaka a freer role on the pitch.

Partey missed several games before the international window, and he has been injured on duty for Ghana again.

The Sun reports Arsenal is now frustrated with his physical struggles, and they are looking to find a replacement.

Luiz is their prime target for that role, and they tried to sign him for £23m on deadline day.

Aston Villa kept him even though his contract expires in the summer, and he is not interested in signing an extension.

The report says Arsenal will table a new bid for him to solve their midfield crisis, but it would not be as much as they were willing to pay in the summer.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Luiz is a top player, and that is why we wanted to add him to our squad in the last transfer window.

Despite missing out on that transfer, he remains committed to Villa, which shows he has the right attitude as a professional player.

  1. Not sure about Luiz being a “top player.” If we could bring him in to replace ElNeny and a true top player to replace Partey that would be ideal.

    Luiz is currently better than Lokogna, but he isn’t the answer for the future DM position; we should be targeting better.

    1. Luiz is good for arsenal coz he’s of the age-bracket with the rest of the players at the team. He’s the best solution for Arsenal’s problem

  2. Douglas Louis is PL proven and could improve in his performances with the right coaching by Arteta. Arsenal must go in for him in the January transfer window.
