Congratulations:Deal close: Aston Villa set to sign ‘unbelievable’ Luiz replacement…Read more.

Even if Douglas Luiz departs, Aston Villa aims to bolster their squad with additional quality following a successful season.

Despite witnessing their team suffer a 5-0 defeat on the final day of the Premier League against Oliver Glasner’s Crystal Palace, Aston Villa fans will be ecstatic with how the season unfolded.

Under Unai Emery’s guidance, the Villans secured a place in Champions League football, triumphing over formidable opponents such as Chelsea, Manchester United, Newcastle United, and Tottenham Hotspur to secure their spot at the elite table for the next campaign.

Despite the remarkable success on the pitch, not everyone may be inclined to stay at Emery’s camp this summer, especially with ongoing rumors surrounding Douglas Luiz’s potential departure during the transfer window. Arsenal has reignited their interest in Villa’s Brazilian midfield standout. The Villa Park hierarchy is evidently aware of the impending midfield vacuum, as they edge closer to securing a replacement to mitigate the potential loss of Luiz this summer.

Aston Villa close to signing Premier League revelation

It appears that a deal for Emery’s Champions League-bound side to acquire Luton Town midfielder Ross Barkley is nearing completion. According to Football Insider, the deal has been finalized for Villa to secure the services of the former Everton player, who has had a tumultuous career and was previously associated with Villa Park.

After rejuvenating his career with Luton Town this season following a lackluster spell at Chelsea, Barkley has emerged with 11 goals and assists, despite the Hatters’ relegation to the Championship. His improved performance has attracted interest from Eddie Howe’s Magpies, who are reportedly vying to secure his coveted services.

Yet, it looks as if the pull of Champions League football has been a major factor in the 30-year-old wanting to relocate from Kenilworth Road to Villa Park after being a revelation this season for Rob Edwards’ valiant outfit.
