Arsenal are interested in signing Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa in the January transfer window, according to TEAMtalk. The report has claimed that the defensive midfielder is too expensive for Arsenal in the middle of the season, and that the North London club would not be able to afford him.
Luiz has been on the books of Villa since 2019 when he joined from Manchester City. The 25-year-old has been a hugely influential figure for the Villans and has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.
Arsenal are on the hunt for a new defensive midfielder in the January transfer window due to injury issues over Thomas Partey. The Gunners are third in the Premier League table at the moment with 27 points from 12 matches, a point behind leaders and defending champions Manchester City.
