Gunners looking to sign Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa

Aston Villa

Arsenal’s sporting director Edu has been looking promising to sign some key players this transfer window. Edu along with Mikel Arteta is looking for the club’s best interest. Along with incomings there will also be some players leaving the club to make space. Arsenal are planning to sign striker, midfielder, left-back and maybe keeper too. As per the keeper’s situation, David Raya could move permanently to North London. The Gunners are now linked with Douglas Luiz to partner Declan Rice next season.

Arsenal finished on 2nd position in Premier League for the second time in a row. However there has been massive improvement as the gunners this time lost the league by only two points. Last season they lost it by five points. Mikel Arteta has been praised and loved by fans for doing amazing job. Arsenal also have promised a better next season along with some key changes in the lineup. The Gunners will hope to end their long drought of Premier League in the next season with these new signings. Their hunt for the midfielder is currently ongoing and have also hinted the farewell to Thomas Partey.

Thomas Partey has had very good spell at North London. In his 4 year spell the Ghanaian international earned his place as regular starter providing some really good performances consistently. However this season he has been inconsistent and even has missed 26 matches due to injuries. Partey’s Arsenal contract is going to expire next year so the club is considering to sell him this season. The Ghanaian midfielder can expect offer from Fenerbahce and FC Barcelona according to TEAMtalk. Currently Arsenal are linked to various midfielders with Douglas Luiz’s name being a recent addition to the list.

Gunners planning a move for Douglas Luiz

Arsenal have been linked to top names across the whole europe. Recently they are reported to go after Villa’s amazing midfielder who is enjoying his great spell. However the move won’t be an easy task as Villa are now going to play in Champions League.

Douglas Luiz has been in England for almost 7 years now. He signed for Manchester City back in 2017 but unfortunately didn’t receive any play time there. City sent him on loan to spanish side Girona where Luiz showed his ability and was quickly signed by Aston Villa in 2019. Ever since 2019, Luiz has been an important player for Aston Villa. Luiz played an important part this season in making Villa’s way back in the Champions League. He played 35 Premier League matches this season and scored 9 goals along with providing 5 assists in those. Across all competitions the Brazilian international has managed to reach double figures in both goals and assists.

The Gunners are hoping to sign Luiz and pair him with Declan Rice. As Luiz plays as defensive midfielder he could be able to fill the void left by Partey’s departure. Aston Villa are reported to demand £85 million for Luiz but are hoping to keep him. Unai Emery has used Luiz very well and achieved successful results and hoping to continue the same in champions league as well.

What are other names linked with Arsenal

The Gunners were heavily linked with Martin Zubimendi in the past weeks. The Spanish international was reported very close to make his move to North London. The reports are still saying that this deal can happen very soon. Zubimendi who also plays as defensive midfielder could cost Gunners £52 million which is way less than Luiz. Jorginho has now signed a new contract extension with Arsenal despite the offers from Serie A clubs.
