Aston Villa has a potential pathway to acquire a Benfica player, indicating a forthcoming transfer with the price likely open to negotiation.

Aston Villa could have another opportunity to pursue Benfica midfielder Florentino Luis this summer, as he evaluates his future at the Portuguese club.

According to Ataque, the supplement for Jornal de Noticias, Luis is contemplating a move away from Benfica despite being under contract until 2027. He has seen limited playing time under Roger Schmidt this season, with preferences given to Orkun Kocku and Joao Neves in midfield. The impending arrival of Leandro Barreiro in the summer will only intensify the competition for places, prompting Luis to explore his options. Aston Villa, who expressed interest last summer but were quoted €40m for the player, could be among his potential suitors.

However, it is likely that Luis’s price has decreased since last summer due to his reduced role in the team. Whether Aston Villa will be enticed to make a move remains uncertain, especially considering their financial constraints and the abundance of midfield options they already possess. Nonetheless, their prior interest has positioned them as potential contenders for Luis’s signature in the eyes of Ataque.
