Italian journalist and transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claims Douglas Luiz is currently under Arsenal’s radar for January transfer window.

Writing on CaughtOffSide, Romano stated that Gunners will have tough job in their hand, if they want to sign the Brazilian winger. Luiz has recently signed a new contract at Aston Villa.

Speaking to BBC Sports, pundit Garth Crooks suggested Douglas Luiz has been outstanding under Unai Emery at Villa. He said :-

“The ease with which he struck the ball to score his fifth consecutive home league goal in the 6-1 win over Brighton said it all for me. This player has been a revelation for Aston Villa since the arrival of Unai Emery.”

Back in May, pundit Ian Wright claimed that Douglas Luiz has improved lot under Unai Emery. He said :-

“[Unai Emery has done] An unbelievable job and you can see the improvement in the players.

“I think Douglas Luiz is a very good example of someone who’s massively improved, he’s been fantastic.”

And his top form suggests, he caught attention of some big Premier League clubs including Arsenal. Mikel Arteta want to add more options at middle of the park.

Romano suggested Arsenal continue monitoring their top targets frequently

Fabrizio Romano suggests Gunners have tendency to keep their target on the radar for some time. He told :-

“As I recently reported, Arsenal have been monitoring Pedro Neto for some time, and I can also say that Arsenal always keep monitoring the same players they like and Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz remains one of them. He’s always been appreciated.

“Of course, we know that Arsenal had bids rejected for Luiz in September 2022, and he later went on to sign a new contract at Villa Park, which runs until 2026. He’s now a key player for Villa so the deal would not be an easy one, but many clubs appreciate him.”
