Aston Villa couple Alisha Lehmann and Douglas Luiz 'set for historic double transfer'

Aston Villa couple Alisha Lehmann and Douglas Luiz 'set for historic double transfer'

Aston Villa duo Alisha Lehmann and Douglas Luiz could be leaving to sign for the same club, reports claim.

Aston VIlla power couple Alisha Lehmann and Douglas Luiz are set to be involved in a first of its kind double deal.

Despite helping Villa secure Champions League football with a fourth-placed finish last season, Luiz has been heavily linked with a move away.

Arsenal have interest in the Brazilian international but the latest developments claim that he has agreed personal terms with Serie A side Juventus and are said to be close to a final agreement.

But in a shock update as per reports in Italy, the Bianconeri are also believed to be open to signing his partner Lehmann, who plays for Villa women.

Mauro Munno, a reporter for, claims a possible switch would be linked to Luiz's mooted move and would not affect the club's budget for the women's side.

At first he claimed the club were thinking about it more and more seriously but it was not seen as a "necessity".

Luiz is understood to have made the request for the historic marketing move and it is now "becoming a reality".

Lehmann would take up one of the 10 foreign spots in Juve women's squad and would likely command a substantial salary too.

She has grown into one of the most popular female footballers in the world and her 16.6 million Instagram followers - more than Villa's account - makes her the most followed women's footballer on the platform by some distance.

The couple got together in 2021 when Lehmann moved from West Ham and briefly split up before getting back together.

Earlier this year, Luiz revealed that the two do not speak about football at home and also live a normal life.

"We do everything normal. We go to dinner when we want. I am more a home person anyway. But of course I do want to do some social things with her," he told the Daily Mail.

"Here in England everything is calm. If I go to the shop in Brazil it's crazy, almost impossible. We have a good life here."

Luiz, who is part of Brazil's squad for the Copa America tournament, joined Villa from Manchester City in 2019 and has made 204 appearances.
