Will Luiz leave Villa?

It seems that Arsenal may be in a battle to land one of the clubs top transfer targets this summer window.

Mikel Arteta is a man that knows he needs to splash a bit more cash on his squad and add some players to the side that will take them to another level – as they seek to finally win back that Premier League title.

Douglas is a player that ARSENAL have wanted in the past, he is a player that the Spanish boss would love to have in his squad this summer, and is a player that is seemingly leaving Aston Villa in the coming weeks.

However – it seems that a move to Seria A giants Juventus is on the cards for the Brazilian midfielder – as reporter Fabrizio Romano has opened up and claimed that a deal to take the Villa ace to Juve is closer than ever.

Fabrizio Romano said: “Let’s mention this one. The Here We Go for Douglas Luiz to Juventus is closer than ever.

“We are not there yet, and now we will explain why, but it’s closer than ever, because what we can say tonight is that Juventus and Douglas Luiz have completed the agreement on personal terms.

“So, after the agreement almost reached between the clubs – Juventus and Aston Villa – now Douglas Luiz and his agent Kia Joorabchian have given the green light to Juventus.

“So, the contract is ready, the salary is ready, everything is OK between Juventus and Douglas Luiz.”

ARSENAL really wanted the player in January and they have been keeping a very close eye on him, but if that board really wanted to get a deal done – they would have by now.

Arsenal have money to spend on whatever players they wants – so the news that he is heading to Juventus may be a surprise – But not a 100 per cent shock.
