Transfer Gossip: oney Out, Luiz In, and Højbjerg on Juventus’ Radar

Gunners Navigate January Transfer Landscape with Tactical Moves in Pursuit of New Signings


In the ever-dynamic world of football transfers, Arsenal is making strategic decisions to shape its squad for the future. While steering clear of a potential financial pitfall with Ivan Toney, the Gunners are eyeing Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz to bolster their midfield. Meanwhile, Juventus sets its sights on Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Højbjerg.


In a tactical move applauded by many, Arsenal has opted not to pursue Brentford striker Ivan Toney in the upcoming January transfer window. Earlier concerns about a speculated £80 million “triple tax” on English players from the Premier League seem to have influenced this decision. TEAMtalk reports that Arsenal has heeded this advice, putting a halt to any plans to sign the prolific forward from Brentford.

Football Insider adds that Tottenham is poised to compete with Premier League rivals for Toney’s signature next summer, providing additional confirmation that there will be no Arsenal move in January. Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United are mentioned as potential suitors, closely monitoring Toney’s performance following a betting ban.


Shifting their focus to midfield reinforcements, Arsenal is considering a move for Brazilian talent Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa. Despite the associated January and Premier League taxes, Arsenal sees Luiz as a valuable addition, especially to support standout midfielder Declan Rice. Luiz, a long-time target for Arsenal’s Edu, is viewed as a player who could thrive in a Champions League setting.

According to Brazilian outlet UOL, Arsenal has turned its attention away from Fluminense’s Andre, also attracting interest from Liverpool. The current favorites for Luiz’s signature, however, are Fulham, eyeing him as a replacement for Joao Palhinha, set to join Bayern Munich in January.

In an unexpected twist, Juventus sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli attended the Tottenham vs. Chelsea clash with a specific focus on Pierre-Emile Højbjerg. Despite initial doubts about Højbjerg starting, the match’s chaotic nature thrust him into a prominent role. The Daily Telegraph now claims that Juventus is targeting Højbjerg in the January transfer window, adding to previous speculations linking the player to Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich. Højbjerg’s unique playing style, seemingly ill-suited for 11-man Spurs, could find a more fitting home elsewhere in the football market.
