Another La Liga team wants to sign Arsenal outcast

Lucas Torreira looks set to continue playing club football in Spain even if Atletico Madrid does not exercise an option to make his move permanent.

The Uruguayan moved to the Spanish side in the summer after falling down the pecking order at the Emirates.

His time in Spain hasn’t been as happy as he would have wanted with Diego Simeone rarely using him.

He is expected to leave them when this campaign ends, and ideally, he should return to Arsenal.

However, Todofichajes says Atleti will not extend his stay and he doesn’t feature in the plans of Mikel Arteta.

This summer will be an important one for him as he attempts to look for a home where he will be appreciated.

The report says he is likely to remain in Spain as Celta Vigo wants him.

They are looking to bolster their team and they feel that he has the profile of the player that they want.

He also has interest from Italy with Torino and Fiorentina mentioned, however, the report claims that he would prefer to remain in Spain for now.

Arsenal hoped he would see more playing time in Spain and improve his value, but that hasn’t happened and it could see them make a loss when he finally leaves them permanently.

    I wish him the best wherever he ends up. Love his fighting spirit, but pitifully Arteta doesn’t see this. My lil warrior, I call him.

      AND “PITIFULLY” YOU ARE ARROGANT ENOUGH TO THINK THAT YOU, WHO ARE NOT IN PRO FOOTBALL, KNOW BETTER THAN OUR MANAGER , WHO IS!

    Diego Simeone is obviously another Manager who does not rate him as he has rarely figured for Athletico Madrid.In the present financial climate I very much doubt it we will get more than 10m for Torreria.

      For that kind of money we better keep him, he is much better than ceballos or elneny. He could be a good squad player if he can get used to the country and quit his homesickness bs.

    I liked Torreira when he joined, but as he didn’t settle in London then the club was flogging a dead horse, coupled with him going off the boil to a degree
