Chelsea wants to spend £25 million on an Aston Villa midfielder.

According to reports, Chelsea and Arsenal are vying for the services of Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz.

The 24-year-old received late interest from the Gunners in the summer transfer window, but a transfer to the Emirates Stadium never happened.

On the final day of the transfer window, Villa reportedly turned down three offers from Arsenal for the Brazilian, including a final offer of £25 million. Steven Gerrard’s team reportedly wanted between £30 and £40 million.

Given that the midfielder’s contract at Villa Park expires in less than a year, it is unclear how long he will stay there.

Beginning in January, the former Manchester City player will be able to discuss pre-contract agreements with foreign teams.

If the former Manchester City player decides against signing a new contract with Villa, he will be able to discuss pre-contract agreements with foreign clubs starting in January.

According to a recent report, Mikel Arteta is eager to provide Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka with midfield competition, so Arsenal is ready to rekindle their interest in Luiz when the January transfer window opens.

The Gunners will have competition in the new year from Graham Potter’s Chelsea, according to Birmingham Live.

Since both N’Golo Kante and Jorginho are now in their 30s, it is believed that the Blues will be looking to strengthen their midfield options in 2023 despite spending more than £250 million on summer acquisitions.

Todd Boehly, a co-owner of Chelsea, is allegedly drawn to the idea of signing Luiz for a bargain price after making significant summer purchases.
