The transfer saga involving Arsenal’s desperation to take Luiz to the Emirates is yet to reach its endgame.
It emerged a while back that Arsenal are prepared to give up on their pursuit of the midfielder after Villa rejected two offers, the last of which was around £23m.
However, there is still some life left in the saga with Arsenal are ready to table a third offer for the Brazilian.
It has been claimed that the Gunners are willing to make a new offer worth £23m and another £2m in potential add-ons.
Arsenal are prepared to sweeten the deal for Aston Villa by offering some more money in add-ons for Luiz.
The figure is still some way short of the £40m Villa want but there is hope for Arsenal in their pursuit of the player.
It has been claimed that the Midlands club will consider a third offer from Arsenal for the midfielder.
Luiz has nine months left on his contract and is keen to move to Arsenal before the window slams shut tonight.
