Aston Villa: Roma linked with Douglas Luiz

Aston Villa: Roma linked with Douglas Luiz -Aston Villa

AS Roma have been linked with a late summer swoop for Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz.

The Lowdown: Luiz’s summer

Luiz has had a busy summer both on and off the pitch since the end of last season.

The holding midfielder, hailed as ‘fantastic’ by Gregg Evans, was linked with a return to Manchester City at the beginning of the window. City had a buyback clause of £27.5m for the 23-year-old, however, that expired in June and as we know, Luiz remained at Villa Park.

He then represented Brazil at the Olympic Games in Tokyo and won gold with his country, playing the entirety of the final against Spain.

Roma were also trying to sign Luiz earlier in the summer, and it now seems as if Jose Mourinho and co could be back in for the south American with days remaining in the window.

The Latest: Roma links resurface

According to Il Messaggero, cited by Sports Witness, Roma are keen on Luiz.

The report states that a move would cost around €30m (£25.6m) and has been described as a ‘difficult’ one to complete, but it seems as if former Tottenham manager Mourinho, 58, is once again interested in Luiz.

Villa have made some unusual signings in the past, can you identify some? First up, who is this who Villa landed in 2016?

The Verdict: Keep

Villa are yet to add to their central midfield ranks this term, so keeping hold of Luiz should be a priority during the final days of the window.

A number of central midfielders have been linked with a move to the Midlands, most recently Abdou Harroui, so should Villa sell Luiz, they may need more than one midfield arrival before the end of the month.

A reported £25.6m price tag also seems low, especially with the player having two years left on his deal and a £31.5m Transfermarkt valuation.
