Douglas Luiz has made feelings clear on Arsenal move as asking price revealed

Douglas Luiz has responded to rumours linking him with a stunning move to Arsenal following his blistering form at Aston Villa.

Luiz has starred for Villa this season as he's scored an impressive five goals in the Premier League.

He's helped Unai Emery's team mount a Champions League push as they currently occupy fourth spot.

The 25-year-old's performances in the middle of the park hasn't gone unnoticed by the league's big boys, with both Arsenal and Liverpool thought to be keeping tabs on him ahead of making a potential move in January.

The Gunners have reignited their interest in the Brazilian following their unsuccessful pursuit last summer, where they had three bids rejected.

Liverpool are also monitoring his situation as Jurgen Klopp looks to bolster his midfield options.

Luiz is thought to be valued at £60 million and admits he's 'very happy' by the transfer interest, but insists he wants to remain at Villa Park.

"I am very happy to hear the stories, but I am here at Aston Villa," he told Sky Sports.

"My focus is totally here. I don’t spend a lot of time looking at the stories. I see them, but I don’t focus on that and I’m not looking at it every day. My head is here at Aston Villa.

"Unai, honestly, is an incredible manager. Since he arrived here, he has changed the history of the club. Aston Villa is a very big club in England, but things weren’t going so well. Unai has changed it. Now, people respect the club and the players more.

"I believe I am in the best moment of my career. The manager demands a lot from me, and I believe he has helped me a lot as well. I am happier than ever to keep working and continue evolving."
