Juventus, Aston Villa strike deal on Douglas Luiz

Juventus, Aston Villa strike deal on Douglas Luiz

Juventus have agreed a deal with Aston Villa over the signing of Brazil midfielder, Douglas Luiz.

The signing of the 23-year-old midfielder will see Juve's Enzo Barrenechea and Samuel Iling-Junior move in the opposite direction to Villa Park in a swap deal, according to a transfer update on ESPN.

As part of the agreement reached between both clubs, Juventus will be paying around 50m euros (£42.3m) for Luiz, while the club said they will receive 22m euros (£18.5m) from Villa for the two players going the other way, plus a further 3m euros (£2.5m) linked to bonuses.

The player will undergo a medical while on a training camp with Brazil next week at the Copa America, Juventus said in a statement on Saturday.

Weston McKennie was initially involved in the deal and even threatened to scupper it if not paid off but the United States international's wages became a stumbling block at the start of the week and it ultimately proved impossible to finalise a deal.

Argentine Barrenechea was relegated from Serie A last season while on loan at Frosinone and has made five appearances for Juventus, while England Under-21 international Iling-Junior, who came through Chelsea's academy, played 27 times for Juve last term.

Aston Villa player and Switzerland striker Alisha Lehmann will also move to Juventus.
