Arsenal told this midfield solution may come for just £10m in January

Frank McAvennie has claimed that Douglas Luiz could join Arsenal from Aston Villa for as little as £10million in January.

Mikel Arteta is keen on having a midfield solution after the injury of Mohamed Elneny and Thomas Partey. He now wants an option to add depth to his squad


Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former West Ham striker wants the 24-year-old to leave before his contract expires in 12 months to bring in money for the club.


“You’re only worth what people offer for you,” he told Football Insider.


“When people want you that’s when you’re worth money and you can bargain and get the money up. I don’t know him personally, what his temperament is like. I don’t know if he wants to stay or if he’s got ambitions to go then it doesn’t matter how much Aston Villa want to drop the price, if he doesn’t want to go until next year then he won’t go.


“If he wants to leave in January, Steven Gerrard will have to tell him they’re dropping the price to £10million or £15m and if he says yes he’ll leave and if he says no he’ll stay until the summer.


“I don’t think players need to money nowadays the way they used to. So Gerrard can talk to him and ask him if he wants to see out his contract or get a bit of money for the club. If he’s got any decency he’ll get some money for the club.“
