‘The most exquisite defence-splitting passes’: BBC pundit blown away by £15m player Arsenal reportedly want

Douglas Luiz, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal, received praise for his recent outstanding performance in the Premier League. 

The Gunners have been strongly associated with the Aston Villa midfielder in recent times, and speculation surrounding his potential transfer persisted leading up to and during the January transfer window.

For example, Fabrizio Romano stated on his YouTube channel in November that Luiz is Arsenal’s “top target” ” for the year.

Additionally, Ben Jacobs mentioned on the Done Deal Show in January that Luiz is one of the players Arsenal would “absolutely” be interested in signing.

The player Arsenal has been targeting for a while showcased an exceptional performance for Aston Villa during their 5-0 victory over Sheffield United last Saturday. 

Luiz contributed to his team’s lead with a remarkable through-ball that nearly resulted in a goal by Ollie Watkins. 

Although the ball rebounded off the post as Anel Ahmedhodzic tried to clear it, it ended up in the path of John McGinn, who confidently scored.

Luiz demonstrated his skill once again by assisting Villa’s second goal, as he delivered an exceptional outside-of-the-boot pass that Watkins successfully converted in the 16th minute, extending their lead to 2-0. 

His impressive performance earned him a place in Garth Crooks’ latest Premier League Team of the Week, highlighting his contribution as a midfielder valued at £15 million.

“Luiz set up two goals in a matter of minutes with the most exquisite defence-splitting passes,” he wrote on the BBC Sport website.

“The Brazilian was back to his best against a United side that looks destined to play its football next season in the Championship if they don’t beat Luton at Kenilworth Road at the weekend.”
