Douglas Luiz of Aston Villa is on the Arsenal radar, according to reports from Sun..
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is on the market in search of a new midfielder, and he believes the 23-year-old player fits their needs.
The London side has recently been impressive in the Premier League, winning four games in a row following a 2-1 defeat at Everton last month.
After defeating Southampton and West Ham in December, they defeated Leeds United and Norwich City to climb the table.
Londoners are currently fourth on the league table, scoring 35 points in 20 games.
However, Mohammed Ernie and Thomas Partey may not be able to compete in the next five games due to their participation in the Africa Cup of Nations.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles is set to leave Emirates Stadium in the January transfer window. This means that Arteta has only Granit Xhaka and Albert Sambi Lokonga as two senior midfielders.
Douglas Luiz will be a great sign for Arsenal who need to bring reinforcements to this transfer window.
However, the Gunners may have to give up a huge amount to secure the 23-year-old signature.
Midfielder first joined Aston Villa in 2019. £ £15 million people, and now Lions may demand huge transfer fees to get him away.
Mikel Arteta’s side is also associated with Denis Zakaria of Borussia Mönchengladbach. However, they face competition for 25-year-old players and are said to be of interest to the hosts of top European clubs.
