Earlier, Romano claimed it was a deal that could go through with Arsenal and Douglas Luiz’s agents pushing for the transfer to go ahead.

Villa keeps its guns as it stands rejecting offers. But with the signing of Leo Dendoncker, there may well be room late for Villa to pull the trigger and let Arsenal strike a deal here.

Luiz is also believed to be open to the move and there are no issues regarding the personal terms from the player’s side. Likewise, Arsenal are believed to be desperate to complete the deal.

Arsenal have already spent over £100m this summer and signing Luiz would complete a remarkable window for the club if successful.
