Arsenal considering offer for midfielder from Italian side

Italian journalist, Alvaro Levrero claims that Arsenal is considering a 24 million euros offer from Torino for Lucas Torreira.

The Gunners will look to offload some of their current players in this transfer window and the Uruguayan midfielder is one player that will likely be sold.

He has been a player who Mikel Arteta hasn’t shown a lot of trust in and the Spaniard might cash in on him this summer.

Levrero reports that the offer is tempting for the Gunners because they need money to fund a move for Thomas Partey.

Arsenal has been prepared to sell him for some time now and they have also had an offer from Fiorentina for a season-long loan deal that will include an obligation to buy (90mins).

Fiorentina is prepared to pay 8 million euros for the loan deal, but they have now been overtaken by their fellow Italian side.

Torreira joined Arsenal from Sampdoria in 2018 after he shone at the 2018 World Cup with Uruguay.

He was one of the first names on the team sheet in his first campaign at the Emirates, but he lost his place on the team last season.

Partey remains a key target for the Gunners and they will have made almost half of Atletico’s asking price if they sell him to Torino for 24 million euros.

    €24m….. and no installment plan?! We’d be mad not to take them up on it!

    1. Adajim says:

      Sue, £25m for Bellerin was rejected, am not sure what is going on. Hopefully both sale help in funding Aourora or Partey transfer

      1. Sue says:

        Maybe we’re holding out for closer to 30m, Adajim?

    2. Maxis says:

      Agreed. 50% of TP release clause secured.

      Apparently Aston Villa have offered close to our £20 million valuation of Martinez.

      1. Sue says:

        Yeah just saw that, Declan…..🙈

      2. Kenya 001 says:

        If we sell emie we’ll need to sign a replacement!

    5. Kenya 001 says:

      👍💯

  2. Ikileng darius says:

    Bellerine to stay

  3. Grandad says:

    Accept the offer and move on.

  4. SueP says:

    I liked Torreira and hoped that he could have made a greater impact, but there is no point him staying and not getting a game and his family are unsettled in the UK too.

    Hopefully it will be a win win situation for both him and the club if Arteta is able to land a new signing as a result of his departure.

      👍

  5. Matthew Shannon says:

    If that deal and Bellerin deal are on the table that’s the money to sign Partey. Surely the club has to consider this. If they can sell Guendouzi and offer Lyon Lacazette plus cash I think that would get Aouar deal over the line as Lyon are going to lose Depay and possibly Dembele.

    1. Joe Allysons says:

      All this for two players? Jeez bro. That’s more weakening than strengthening. Now you have to deal with Nketiah learning on the Job, Auba having to deal with big PL defenders kicking his ankles, we have to start making excuses about how Niles isn’t a natural Fullback and how he’s doing a great job out of position, we have to blame Arteta for signing an old Cedric. But no worries . We got Aouar and Partey.

  6. gooner4life says:

    I’m wondering do we not have a release clause in any of our players contracts? It seems we will just accept any reasonable offer unlike the players we want to buy we have to pay top prices. Why can’t we be as astute in our transfer dealings?

    1. ozziegunner says:

      gooner for life, release clauses only work if they are under the player’s real valuation. If the release clause is higher, no club will come in for the player. Release clauses are used to deter suitors in the main.

  7. Roachie says:

    I think Guendouzi is the elephant in the room as far as the Partey deal is concerned. If he can’t be found a new home we will struggle to get Partey

  8. Charles Kikimba says:

    Club must sell few players in order to fill important position.
    we must offload Guendouzi, Toreira and Lacazete just to make money for signing creative midfielder Thomas Partey

    “OUR TEAM STILL STRONGER ENOUGH”

    WE NEED “THOMAS PARTEY”

    1. Kenya 001 says:

      Laca should stay won’t depend on the youngsters nketiah all season for the no 9

  9. gunnerforlife says:

    The offer is too good to refuse and AFC should take it up. Also Torreira is not too happy in London and it is good for him to leave. Also sell Socrates, Mustafi and Kola so that all makes for the funds to buy Partey. I believe Laca should not be sold as Nketiah is too young to take up the responsibility of the main striker for the entire season.
