Aston Villa are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the midfielder, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
Douglas Luiz ideal fit for Juventus?
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
Although he may not be an immediate improvement to the squad, he could be a valuable signing for the future if he continues to progress at this rate.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Juventus.
It will be interesting to see what happens when Juve come calling for Luiz this winter.
