Douglas Luiz has an uncertain future at Aston Villa. The 23-year-old is out of contract in 18 months and is yet to put pen to paper on an extension. Arsenal and AS Roma have shown an interest in Luiz and reports in November suggested the Brazilian international was open to leaving Villa.

Luiz is expected to have enquiries this month and supporters on social media are worried about losing such a talented player. Fans hope Villa resolve his contract situation as soon as possible, as they feel the 23-year-old is too valuable to let go.

The Brazilian international joined Villa on a four-year deal from Manchester City in 2019 and has gone on to make 91 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals with eight assists. Luiz has been a regular under Dean Smith and now Steven Gerrard, so garnering attention from big clubs due to his performances.

Luiz’s form has been inconsistent when he’s asked to operate in a deep-lying role, but he could get back to his best if Villa sign a defensive-midfielder as planned this month.
