Arsenal on lookout for young Premier League midfielder Douglas Luiz

Arsenal

Arsenal aims to acquire Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz. With reports stating their strong interest and active pursuit for the Brazilian, according to Football Insider.

Additionally, the report notes that Arsenal’s several bids for the midfielder were rejected in recent transfer windows.

Aston Villa may consider negotiating a new contract with the 25-year-old Brazilian midfielder. But talks on an extension have not commenced between the two parties.

Can Douglas Luiz become a suitable partner of Declan Rice of Arsenal?

Luiz has emerged as one of the premier defensive midfielders nationally, drawing interest from elite clubs. Arsenal, in particular, could greatly benefit from his talents, potentially serving as a superior long-term partner for Declan Rice and an upgrade over Thomas Partey.

The technically adept South American midfielder aspires to compete at the highest level. Joining a club like Arsenal, contending for the league title since last season, could offer Luiz the chance to secure major trophies, making it a compelling opportunity.

To rival teams like Manchester City, Arsenal must enhance their squad, and acquiring Luiz could elevate them significantly. The 25-year-old not only provides midfield control, composure, and defensive cover but also contributes creatively with his technical attributes.

The West Midlands club is unlikely to want to lose such a valuable prospect anytime soon, and the unfolding situation is yet to reveal its developments.

Arsenal currently sit 4th of the table and it is gradually becoming difficult for them to reach Liverpool. They need to make sure not to lose further points if they still dream of remaining in the title race.
