Aston Villa has identified Lens and Black Stars midfielder Salis Abdul Samed as a potential replacement for Douglas Luiz, who is attracting interest from Arsenal and Liverpool.
Abdul Samed, who featured against Arsenal on Wednesday night, is now on Villa’s wish list, according to a report from TEAMtalk.
Despite Lens suffering a 6-0 defeat at the Emirates Stadium, Abdul Samed’s performance has caught the attention of Villa scouts.
The club is considering a move for the midfielder in case Douglas Luiz departs Villa Park, with Liverpool and Manchester City also entering the race for Luiz’s signature.
Villa aims to be prepared with potential replacements should Luiz leave, and Abdul Samed has emerged as a candidate for the Premier League side.
