Report – Premier League midfielder tells friends he is joining Arsenal

Douglas Luiz remains keen on a move to Arsenal even though Aston Villa rejected a deadline day move for him.

The Brazilian emerged as the Gunners’ main target on deadline day, and they made three bids to sign him.

However, the last, which totalled £25million, was turned down by Steven Gerrard’s side, who stuck with their £30million for the player.

Arsenal remains interested in a move for him, and they could return to sign him in the winter transfer window. 

Football Insider says the Gunners have maintained contact with the Brazilian’s camp.

He has also informed friends that he wants to join the Londoners if both clubs can find an agreement.

He has an offer to extend his deal with Villa on the table, but he has not responded to it yet, and his preference could be to leave them.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Luiz’s intention to join us is a good sign, and we need to return for him in the January transfer window.

Thomas Partey is often injured, and Mohamed Elneny is likely to leave the Emirates as a free agent at the end of this season.

At 24, Luiz is at the perfect age to join our rebuild, and we need to get the deal sorted as soon as possible.

  1. I think it’s becoming clear we need to replace Partey due to his injury record. Strange that before he came to us he was hardly ever injured.

    1. I agree with you that we need to sell Partey. He is prone to injuries. He hardly plays 3 consecutive matches before picking an injury.

  2. I’m sure he can talk to European clubs on the 18th November so it could be a long wait until January. I do hope we sign him he’s a player I like. I also hope we sign SMS of lazio and Osimhen in the summer and go for the title

    1. Bring him to Arsenal, the player can’t wait to don the Arsenal jersey. I noted after his corner kick goal against Arsenal, he did not celebrate.

  3. Douglass Luiz can be a useful addition though we may well discover a top top midfielder by January that becomes available.

  4. If we don’t come up with any better option to him by January, then it might be a good idea him over.

    Hopefully Villa will prefer releasing him then for whatever agreeable fee than losing him completely for free 5 months later.

  5. I can see it happening, with Mo out of contract at the end of the season, Douglas could be his makes sense to me since it is a free.
