Samuel Iling-Junior is open to joining Aston Villa in a player-plus-cash swap deal that would allow Juventus to sign Brazilian midfielder Douglas Luiz.

Samuel Iling Jr: Juventus winger keen to join Aston Villa in Douglas Luiz swap deal

Transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio reported on Monday night that the two parties were getting closer to an agreement.

Juventus are looking for a new central midfielder but will surely need more if Adrien Rabior refuses to sign a contract extension, leaving the club at the end of his contract on June 30.

Douglas Luiz, 26, finished the 2023-24 campaign with ten goals and as many assists in 53 appearances across all competitions with Aston Villa.
