Chelsea are one of the teams interested in signing Douglas Luiz after Arsenal failed to sign him in the recently concluded transfer window, according to Birmingham Mail.

The Gunners reportedly made three offers for the midfielder on deadline day but the Villans rejected them all despite being aware of his contract situation. If he doesn’t extend his stay at Villa Park, Luiz could leave as a free agent in the summer of 2023.

The player was reportedly valued at £40m but the Birmingham-based side may have to drop his valuation in the near future. If he doesn’t sign a new deal, January 2023 will be the only time they can hope to make any money from his transfer.

Chelsea will have to be wary of Arsenal, however, as they are unlikely to end their interest in the player. After all, the hat-trick of offers from the North Londoners last summer makes it clear just how badly manager Mikel Arteta wants him at the Emirates.

Moreover, Arsenal haven’t signed a central or defensive midfielder this summer, with playmaker Fabio Vieira being their only midfield addition.

With that in mind, missing him earlier this month could prove to be a blessing in disguise if they manage to sign him on a free transfer in 2023.

Similarly, Chelsea could benefit from his addition to their aging midfield. N’Golo Kante (30) and Jorginho (31) are not getting any younger and are both out of contract next year.

The Brazil international has made seven appearances for Villa this season in all competitions, scoring two goals, including one against Arsenal in a 2-1 Premier League defeat on August 31.

Chelsea and Arsenal among teams seeking Bayer Leverkusen winger

According to 90min, representatives from Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Newcastle United were present at BayArena to watch Bayer Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby play against Atletico Madrid.

Their reports reportedly had a glowing assessment of the French winger as he scored the second goal in Bayer Leverkusen’s 2-0 Champions League win on September 13.

Known for his dribbling ability and blistering speed, the 23-year-old striker is just getting started on the big stage.

However, he hasn’t been called up by manager Didier Deschamps for the France squad this month. The former Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) winger has registered one goal and two assists in 10 appearances this season.
