Roma coach Mourinho targeting Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz

Roma coach Jose Mourinho is targeting Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz.

The Brazilian has been on Roma's radar since last summer and Villa are likely to consider offers for him, given there is only one year remaining on his contract.

Villa have already strengthened in midfield, with Boubacar Kamara agreeing a five-year contract with the club after allowing his deal with Marseille to expire, and may look to add another player in that area of the pitch, says the Daily Mail.

With John McGinn, Jacob Ramsey and Marvelous Nakamba also at the club along with youngsters Carney Chukwuemeka and Tim Iroegbunam, Gerrard has plenty of options and the sale of Luiz – although highly regarded by Villa – would give him room for manoeuvre in the market in other positions.

Mourinho is also keen to improve his midfield, with Roma willing to sell Jordan Veretout.
