Brazilian footballer Douglas Luiz of Aston Villa is a concrete target in this upcoming summer transfer window, reports Corriere della Sera.
The 24-year-old is Roma’s main big name for the midfield given the favourable contractual situation Luiz is currently in.
His contract with Villa is set to expire a year from now, and the player has already expressed his willingness to move elsewhere.
Aston Villa recently signed young midfielder Boubacar Kamara from OM, which may hint at the English side’s preparations for Luiz’s exit in the summer.
The Giallorossi want to invest heavily to strengthen their midfield and Luiz may just be the right name for the job.
