Aston Villa heartthrobs Alisha Lehmann and Douglas Luiz could be set for a historic double transfer to Juventus as the pair are targeted for moves to the Italian side’s men’s and women’s team, according to reports.

Juventus are keen to bring Luiz to Italy after offering two players to Aston Villa in exchange for the Brazilian midfielder, knowing the Premier League side are in a position of needing to sell.

Villa are amongst six Premier League clubs that are looking to sell players before the end of June in a bid to stay within the English top-flight’s spending limits and Luiz could make the move.

Juventus are willing to offer Weston McKennie and Samuel Iling Jr in exchange for Luiz and Lehmann could also be joining him in Italy if a deal is agreed.

The Bianconeri could try to strike a double transfer deal with Villa for Lehmann and Luiz, with the pair open to swapping England’s Midlands for Turin, as reported by Juventusnews24.com.

A transfer for Lehmann was originally mooted as a potential scenario, but is now becoming more and more of a reality as Juventus consider bringing the 25-year-old into their women’s team.

Lehmann is one of the most popular figures in the women’s game, boasting over 16m Instagram followers – the most of any female player – and impressing at Aston Villa.

Her popularity and potential is viewed as a smart marketing move for Juventus and was originally requested by Luiz – who wants Lehmann to join him at the club should he leave England.

The Italian giants are now reviewing their next move but their is concern over the salary Lehmann would demand. The Swiss international would also take up one of the club’s 10 foreign player spots if she does move.

Luiz and Lehmann have appeared largely inseparable in social media posts after rekindling their relationship following a previous break and would make history if they are part of a combined transfer deal.

The Villa men’s midfielder previously revealed that the couple live a ‘normal’ life, telling Mail Sport: ‘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.

‘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.’
