Arsenal’s pursuit of Douglas Luiz has been dashed by Unai Emery, who maintains that the Brazilian is happy at Villa Park.
Last January, the Gunners made three unsuccessful attempts to sign the Brazilian, the most expensive being approximately £25 million.
Because Luiz’s contract was still in effect at the time, Arsenal’s proposals were quite high. However, the midfield player has since agreed to a new contract with Birmingham, and under Emery, his play has greatly improved.
Emery further states that the midfield player will not be leaving in January.
‘Douglas is playing very good,’ said Emery.
‘His commitment [is] amazing. I want to keep him and he is happy with us.‘
If they can find someone to replace Thomas Partey, Arsenal will consider offers in January. Saudi Arabia is interested in the Ghanaian international.
Erik ten Hag is anxious to prevent Jadon Sancho from making a “empty gesture,” therefore Manchester United is apparently willing to accept a “significant loss” on him.
Sancho has a disruptive impact on the rest of United’s team, according to manager Ten Hag, who is determined to get rid of the winger.
This season, Sancho and Ten Hag had a nasty falling out, with the Dutchman publicly criticizing his player in the media for his lack of effort in practice. After spending £73 million on him in 2021, United is now willing to suffer a “significant loss” on the player in the January transfer window.
