Roma eyeing Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz

Roma are eyeing Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz.

Corriere dello Sport says Roma see the Brazil international as an alternative to Granit Xhaka.

Arsenal midfielder Xhaka remains Roma's priority target, but there's frustration over the Gunners' asking price.

As such Roma are prepared to turn to Luiz as a new option.

New Roma coach Jose Mourinho is a fan of the midfielder, who joined Villa from Manchester City in 2019.
