During the summer of 2022, Arsenal made several attempts to secure the services of Douglas Luiz, but Aston Villa remained steadfast and did not part ways with the Brazilian midfielder.
Luiz was the player that Mikel Arteta desired to reinforce his midfield options at the Emirates, but an agreement with Villa proved elusive. In response, Luiz extended his contract with Aston Villa and has since established himself as one of the Premier League’s standout midfielders under the guidance of Unai Emery.
Now, as reported by Express Sport, Arsenal has rekindled their interest in acquiring Luiz. The Gunners are anticipating the need for new midfield additions in the January transfer window or at the end of the season, particularly if players like Thomas Partey and Jorginho depart the club.
Luiz would be an ideal signing, and Arteta remains keen on working with the Brazilian, who previously played for Manchester City. However, Villa, with their ambitions, won’t make it easy for Arsenal to secure Luiz’s services, and the Gunners must be prepared to meet Villa’s demands with a substantial transfer fee.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Luiz has been one of the most impressive midfielders in the Premier League for a long time and will impact our team.
But Villa has been successful recently and it will be difficult for them to lose a key player to us now unless we pay a huge fee for his signature.
