Aston Villa has set an astounding price tag of £110 million for Douglas Luiz, aiming to ward off potential suitors such as Arsenal. Luiz's performances at Villa have earned him considerable attention from top clubs, with Arsenal leading the race for his signature. However, it remains to be seen if Arsenal is willing to meet the high demands set by Villa.
Arsenal has previously made attempts to acquire Douglas Luiz during previous transfer windows and may make a move again in January. FootballTransfers reported in November that Villa had rejected Arsenal's most recent approach for Luiz but indicated they may be open to changing their stance for a substantial fee.
Paragraph 3:The latest reports now claim that Aston Villa has set a price of £110 million for Douglas Luiz, which would surpass the £105 million fee Arsenal paid for Ben White. Despite high regard for Luiz's abilities, Arsenal is unlikely to be willing to pay such a fee, especially considering their policy of balancing incomings and outgoings during the January transfer window.Paragraph 4: Arsenal is reportedly willing to pay £60 million for Douglas Luiz, but there still remains a significant gap between their offer and Aston Villa's determination. If Luiz pushes for the move, Villa may be more inclined to accept a transfer fee of £80 million.Paragraph 5: Aston Villa acknowledges that each player has their own valuation, but they remain steadfast in their general stance on transfers: they do not want to sell any key midfield stars midway through the season.Paragraph 6:The prospect of acquiring Douglas Luiz for Arsenal seems to be slipping away, with Villa demanding an astronomical fee that the Gunners are unlikely to meet. Villa's firm stance on retaining their key players in the midst of the season reflects their commitment to achieving their ambitions. As the January transfer window approaches, the outcome of Arsenal's pursuit of Luiz remains uncertain.
