Aston Villa boss Gerrard reluctant to lose Roma target Douglas Luiz

Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard is reluctant to lose Douglas Luiz.

The Brazil international is a target for Roma.

Asked about Luiz's situation back in April, Gerrard said: "He's got 12 months left (in the summer). That's where we're at. We haven't analysed that individual's situation in isolation, if you like. He's a very good player who's been playing the majority of the games. He's a player we rate very much.

"All of the individuals, we'll speak about from now until the end of the season and we'll deal with each case when needs be but that's certainly not right now."

Gerrard continued: "We want to keep all of our good players at the club. For us, to take this where we want to take it, where the ambitions are, we want all of our remaining players to stay."
