Douglas Luiz

Aston Villa  rejected Arsenal’s third and final offer of £25m for midfielder Douglas Luiz.

Arsenal also saw bids of £20m and £23m rejected by Villa earlier on Thursday and even Villa’s capture of Leander Dendoncker from Wolves didn’t shift their position on the Brazilian.

According to reports, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool – were all interested in signing Luiz before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta wanted the player and has worked with him at Manchester City.

Luiz – who is out of contract next summer – would like to play for a club in the UEFA Champions League.

On Wednesday, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid also made a move for him. Juventus were interested as well.

He can speak to foreign clubs like Atletico and Juventus from November 18 and leave as a free agent next summer.

Meanwhile, Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin has joined Barcelona on a free transfer.
