Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz in fresh Arsenal claim after Everton transfer snub
Latets Aston Villa news from Tbfantasy as Arsenal have not forgotten about Douglas Luiz heading into the final week of the window Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz reportedly remains one of Arsenal’s top two targets heading into the final week of the January transfer window.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has been a long-term admirer of the Brazilian and saw offers turned down by Villa in the 2022 summer transfer window. Arsenal have continued to be linked with a move for Luiz since, though Villa have so far stood firm on their stance.

The North London club could be set for an overhaul in midfield, with Thomas Partey, Jorginho and Mohamed Elneny all linked with exits in recent months. That means Declan Rice would be the only recognised senior option if the trio were to depart.
Arsenal have been linked with several potential options to bolster their midfield, including Real Sociedad’s Martin Zubimendi and Everton’s Amadou Onana. Luiz is dubbed Arteta’s dream signing and Zubimendi has been hailed as the “next Busquets.”
Although Everton’s Onana is claimed to be open to a move to the Emirates, he is thought to be the Gunners’ least favoured choice according to journalist Ben Jacobs. He recently told the Football Terrace: “If you were to rank Arsenal’s top two midfield targets even above the links with Onana, it would be Zubimendi and Douglas Luiz.
I think those would be the two if they had carte blanche that they would move for. We know they have tried for Zubimendi in the past, he is very happy at Sociedad, they are having an incredible season so I would expect them not to pre-agree anything. But the Arenal interest hasn’t gone away.
