Brazilian outlet UOL shares an update on the situation of Douglas Luiz, one of the most wanted players at Aston Villa during the summer transfer window.
According to the Brazilian website, the midfielder has been getting receiving in recent weeks, with AC Milan being one of the ‘most interested’ clubs.
It’s said the Rossoneri have made efforts to get information about the potential signing, despite not making an official bid for the transfer yet.
UOL claims that Aston Villa ‘internally’ value Douglas Luiz at €35m this summer. Still, since his contract with the club expires in 2023, it’s likely any offers for him will be below that amount, given the chance of a free transfer is appearing on the horizon.
Last week, there were plenty of stories in the Italian media claiming Milan are indeed very interested in signing Douglas Luiz this summer, as he shows up as an alternative to Lille’s Renato Sanches.
It was even claimed the Brazilian told Aston Villa he’s not signing a new contract, which would basically force the Premier League side to sell him now instead of losing him for nothing next year.
