Douglas Luiz admits he’s ‘very happy’ by transfer interest from Liverpool , but insists he wants to remain at Aston Villa.
It was no secret in the media that LIVERPOOL were very interested in signing Luiz during the summer window and even made a couple of offers for the player, which was quickly rejected.
Rumours are back in the headlines that The Reds will make an offer for Luiz once again – in hope that he is interested in making the move to a Champions League club and a side that will challenge for trophies.
But amid the latest speculation that Liverpool and Arsenal are keen – Luiz has opened up and told chasing clubs that he is flattered by the interest – but is very Happy at Villa right now.
‘I am very happy to hear the stories but I am here at Aston Villa,’ he told Sky Sports.
‘My focus is totally here. I don’t spend a lot of time looking at the stories. I see them, but I don’t focus on that and I’m not looking at it every day. My head is here at Aston Villa.”
‘Unai, honestly, is an incredible manager. Since he arrived here, he has changed the history of the club. Aston Villa is a very big club in England, but things weren’t going so well. Unai has changed it. Now, people respect the club and the players more.
‘I believe I am in the best moment of my career. The manager demands a lot from me and I believe he has helped me a lot as well. I am happier than ever to keep working and continue evolving.’
