Aston Villa ace and Liverpool summer target Douglas Luiz will leave Villa Park as a free agent next summer.
Liverpool had an amazing season last year and almost won every trophy that they were looking for – so Jurgen Klopp didnt need to sign too many players to improve the squad.
However – a number of injuries at the start of the season has left his side looking nothing like the Champions they have shown over the seasons – and he may need to delve into that transfer kitty in the January window.
And that has led to reports that they could make a move for Douglas Luiz – a player that they were interested in over the summer window.
What is the latest?
Despite being happy to stay at the Midlands this term, UOL report the Brazil international has already decided to leave Steven Gerrard’s side when his deal expires in 2023.
And the 24-year-old is eager to extend his Premier League tenure – leading to alot of interest from the big clubs.
Sports Deputy View…
Liverpool were linked with Luiz all season – they have every chance to get him away from Villa – so why wait until the very last day of transfer season?
It doesnt matter right now as the Reds have started the new season very poorly- but fans will surely wonder if Luiz would have made an impact like everyone else that was signed – and could have helped the club.
We would not be surprised to see Liverpool make a move for the man in the January window rather than wait to sign him for free at the end of the season.
