“He was seriously mad and angry because he couldn’t complete his move to join me at Arsenal last summer”- Arsenal star Gabriel Magalhaes revealed his £50M international teammate was hurt after he couldn’t get a move to join him at Arsenal last summer

“He was seriously mad and angry because he couldn’t complete his move to join me at Arsenal last summer”- Arsenal star Gabriel Magalhaes stated that his £50 million international teammate was disappointed when he was unable to join him at Arsenal last summer.

A £50 million Premier League player was disappointed when he was unable to join Arsenal.
Douglas Luiz, an Aston Villa midfielder, was devastated when he missed out on a move to Arsenal in the summer of 2022.

This was revealed in an article on Luiz published today by The Athletic, which outlines how the Brazilian intended to join Manchester City or Arsenal.

Arsenal made multiple proposals for Luiz in 2022, but Aston Villa turned them all down.

Furthermore, Man City never exercised a buy-back clause, which surprised both Villa and the midfielder.

However, the story also reveals that Luiz’s disappointment encouraged him to appreciate what he had at Villa rather than downplay it.

Of sure, Mikel Arteta would love to have a player of Luiz’s caliber at the Emirates right now.

Although Arsenal has a good midfield, Luiz would undoubtedly be a better option than Jorginho and more reliable than Thomas Partey.

Declan Rice appears to be envisioned as a more advanced midfielder on the left, which leaves the ideal role for £50 million Luiz.

Douglas Luiz would have preferred to transfer from Villa to Arsenal.

Perhaps this is a trade that could yet happen in the future; however, Arteta’s team may have to pay a significant premium.

Aston Villa are doing well under Unai Emery, and Luiz has been essential to their success.

If Villa were to lose the Brazilian in the near future, it would almost certainly come at a high price.

It’ll be intriguing to watch where Mikel Arteta focuses his next efforts to improve his squad.

Ivan Toney and Pedro Neto have long been linked with a move to the club.

However, the expertise Luiz is displaying at Aston Villa may be more valuable to Arsenal in the short term.

However, if Arsenal makes a major statement by signing one or two of the stars named above, it could swing the balance.
