Arsenal can finally sign Luiz from Aston Villa, he’s the perfect partner for Rice

Arsenal have been handed a boost with Aston Villa contemplating the sale of Douglas Luiz this month.

The Gunners have long admired the Brazilian international. They previously made three bids to sign him in 2022, but Villa opted against his sale.

The 26-year-old was in and out of the starting XI at the time, but he has since become an undisputed starter for Villa. He registered 10 goals and 10 assists last season.

TalkSPORT claim Villa are considering the sale of Luiz as they need to comply with Profitability and Sustainability rules before the end of the month.

Juventus are admirers of the Manchester City graduate, while Arsenal are also on alert.

Arsenal could revive long-term interest in Luiz

Luiz started his career in the defensive midfield role, but he has become a regular number eight over the past couple of seasons.

He had a passing accuracy of 89 percent in the Premier League with 1.7 tackles and 4.2 duels won. Luiz registered 5.3 ball recoveries per outing.

With his vast Premier League experience, he would be an ideal midfield signing for the Gunners. If Villa are prepared to sell, Manager Mikel Arteta should give the green light for a move.


Luiz and Declan Rice would be a superb pairing in the centre of the park. The duo could easily interchange positions depending on the demands of the game.

The Brazilian is valued at £60 million by Transfermarkt. Villa are most likely to demand a similar package if Arsenal make an approach this summer.
