ARSENAL are lining up a summer move for Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz, de acordo com relatórios.
The Brazilian midfielder, 23, was the subject of multiple bids in the January transfer window, all turned down by the Midlands club.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano revealed the potential move on his podcast.
Ele disse: “Arsenal need a midfielder, they wanted a midfielder in January.
“Also because Elneny will leave the club so they need a player in that position.
“Douglas Luiz is one to watch in the summer.
“Not only for Arsenal, they have an interest, but I’m not convinced he will extend his contract with Aston Villa, so he could be a big name on the market this summer.
“So keep an eye on Douglas Luiz, not only for Arsenal, but they have his name on the list.”
