LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Arsenal are once again expressing interest in Aston Villa’s in-form Brazilian midfielder, Douglas Luiz, after facing multiple rejections in 2022.
According to reports from 90min, Arsenal, led by manager Mikel Arteta, remains keen on securing Douglas Luiz’s signature, particularly following his strong performance in the current season.
The North London club is actively seeking midfield reinforcements and could potentially add another midfielder during the January transfer window.
Arteta and Arsenal’s sporting director, Edu Gaspar, are reported to hold a high regard for Douglas Luiz as a potential addition to the squad.
After finishing as runners-up in the Premier League last season, Arsenal aims to compete for the title this season, making significant signings and bolstering their squad.
Notable additions such as Declan Rice and Kai Havertz have already joined the team, but the club is eager for more talent.
Douglas Luiz’s performance has seen significant improvement under the management of Unai Emery, notably with a scoring streak of six consecutive home games.
The Brazilian midfielder has displayed versatility on the pitch, contributing effectively in multiple areas.
Arsenal had previously attempted to secure Douglas Luiz’s services at the end of the summer transfer window in 2022, making three bids, all of which were declined by Aston Villa.
The Gunners are scheduled to face Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League on October 25.
