​AC Milan turn to Aston Villa ace Douglas Luiz after Renato Sanches setback

AC Milan are considering a move for Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz.

The Rossoneri were hoping to secure Renato Sanches from Lille this summer.

However, Tuttomercatoweb state that Paris Saint-Germain's bid for Sanches is seeing Milan move in a different direction.

The sources indicate that Milan are now monitoring Luiz from Villa.

The 24-year-old Brazilian is not for sale, but is one who Villa boss Steven Gerrard sees as expendable should a big enough offer arrive.

Roma have also been linked to Luiz, who has nine caps for Brazil at senior level.
