AC Milan step up talks for Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz

AC Milan remain in the hunt for Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz.

Milan chief Paolo Maldini has been pushing to bring the Brazil international to Italy for the new season.

Tuttosport says Milan are now stepping up their pursuit after struggling to convince Lille midfielder Renato Sanches to choose them over PSG.

The Rossonero hope to do business with Villa for €20m.

Luiz's agents were recently at Casa Milan, where they struck personal terms with Maldini and fellow director Ricky Massara.
