Chelsea report: Blues to battle Arsenal for Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz

Chelsea entered the race for Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz, according to reports, after Arsenal failed in their bid to sign the Brazilian.

The Gunners had three offers rebuffed on the last day of business as they pushed for the 24-year-old.

Luiz is in the final year of his contract at Villa Park and so the Birmingham club risk losing him for free next summer, but they have resisted the temptation to cash in.

Now the Birmingham Mail (opens in a new tab) reports that Chelsea could enter the equation in the January transfer window.
