Football Insider have revealed that Aston Villa could sell Douglas Luiz to Tottenham Hotspur if they are successful in their pursuit of Leeds United midfielder Tyler Adams.

It was The Daily Mail who were the first to report on July 20 that Spurs are eyeing Luiz as a potential replacement for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who is expected to complete a move to Atletico Madrid over the coming weeks.

However, the publication stated that it was unclear whether Unai Emery would be willing to offload the Brazilian, who was a fixture in the club’s starting eleven last season.

Luiz could now be available amid Tottenham links

Football Insider have now stated that Luiz could now be put on the shop window soon if Villa are able to secure Adams’ services.

It is explained that the Leeds star has a release clause of £20m-£25m in his contract, with the Villans said to be competition with Chelsea for the USA international’s signature.

The report states that if the Midlands club are successful in signing the 24-year-old, Luiz could be the one who makes way for the player this summer.

However, the publication adds that Tottenham are not the only ones after the midfielder, with Arsenal also alleged to hold an interest.

Spurs Web Opinion

Luiz would certainly be a very good replacement for Hojbjerg and would be an excellent cover for Bissouma in the number six role. However, I am convinced that Villa will let the Brazilian go cheaply irrespective of whether they are successful in their pursuit of Adams.
