Transfer deadline day: Real reason Arsenal want to sign Douglas Luiz instead of Tielemans
Arsenal decided to purchase Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa rather than Youri Tielemans from Leicester City.
The reason, according to Lyall Thomas of Sky Sports News, is that the Gunners "prefer the profile of Luiz at the moment."
Arsenal is rumored to have sent a bid for the player after he scored on Thursday in a 2-1 victory at the Emirates against them.
“Arsenal have made a bid for Douglas Luiz in the last few moments.
“That’s the player they are going for on Deadline Day.
“Wolves ruled out the sale of Pedro Neto last week and it appears Arsenal prefer the profile of Luiz to Youri Tielemans at the moment,” Thomas said.
