Juventus linked with Douglas Luiz


Juventus are being linked with a move for Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz as an alternative to Leandro Paredes. The Bianconeri had been linked with a move for the Argentine for much of the summer but a deal is yet to be completed with a suggestion that they are yet to reach an agreement with PSG>

Sky Sport Italia report that Juve have already reached an agreement with Paredes, however the Ligue 1 side are dragging their feet in negotiations.

The report claims that Juve are looking at alternative options and have turned their attention to Luiz as a backup, should the deal for Paredes fail to go through.

The Brazilian has been with Villa for three full seasons and is considered a lynchpin of their midfield, so a move would be difficult but not impossible.
