Agent of Arsenal star claims that midfielder wants a move to Italy

Lucas Torreira’s agent has again fanned the flames of a proposed move back to Italy for the Uruguayan, reports Todomercadoweb.

Torreira joined the Gunners from Sampdoria in 2018 after he shone at the World Cup with his country.

He was the first choice midfielder under Unai Emery in his first season and he also became a fans’ favourite at the Emirates.

However, the arrival of Dani Ceballos has affected his chances at the Emirates this season and Mikel Arteta doesn’t appear to rate him.

The Spaniard is reportedly looking for another midfielder, and that has frustrated the player.

He injured his ankle in Arsenal’s FA Cup game against Portsmouth earlier in the year and he is working his way back to full fitness.

However, he could be turning out for another team next season after his agent revealed that the player is looking for a return to Italy.

Pablo Bentancur told Todo Mercado Web: ‘He was a bit angry about some technical issues but later recovered. 

‘The injury came, fortunately, less serious than expected. Today he is fully recovered, I think it will be an important man in the next market. 

‘I will have to talk to Arsenal. The player would like to return to Italy, but it must be admitted that in England they have treated him very well.’

He has been linked with a move to Milan before and the Gunners could cash in on him if the Italians can meet their asking price.

    We should get Partey in regardless but if Torreira is looking to go to Milan than Partey is a must there’s no way we can let Lucas go and not replace him and Partey would be a great help in midfield with or without Lucas Torreira!!

    Don’t sell Lucas. He’s been brilliant ever since we signed him.
    He’s a real terrier in our defence. Plus I think it’s just newspapers talking rubbish!
    Plus he’s under contract and we don’t have to sell him.

    With the long delay before next season begins let alone this one finishes, it becomes weekly far more likley that Torreira will not be here for next sesson. This wil lapply to a fair few other players to, at almost all top clubs.

    Ultimately, when the dust settles, as it will EVENTUALLY, but some way off yet, football will be leaner, healthier, more moral and a new and welcome financial reality will be forced upon all, thus rescuing our game from the ruinous road it has been on for decades already. ALL THAT IS UNCERTAIN IS REALLY THE TIMING, WHICH NO ONE CAN HOPE TO ACCURATELY PREDICT.

    As much as I admire Torreria for his effort and energy, with respect David to suggest he has been brilliant since we signed him is simply not true. To my mind he has not made an impact in the EPL and I would happily sell him on if it helps to acquire the likes of Partey or Sakaria.

    Pay us good money and goodbye Lucas. He’s been a good player, but we’ll hardly fall apart if he were to go and we can find a better replacement. Partey, namely.

    Torreira, Xhaka, and Ozi cannot protect the defence. When its time for counter attack, they are too slow to catch up opponents with pace. These three guys should just leave The Emirates by all means. Thats where the main problem of Arsenal is
