Arsenal is considering signing former Manchester City star

Ferran Torres could be back in the Premier League, just a year after he sealed a dream move to Barcelona from Manchester City.

The attacker had been delighted to make the move back to Spain, but he is struggling to play in Catalonia, which has opened the door for another club to sign him.

A report on Fichajes reveals Mikel Arteta loves to work with him and Arsenal is one of the clubs he could join next month.

The Gunners lost Gabriel Jesus to a long-term injury which could keep him out of action until March and might have to replace the Brazilian.

A move for a new man will be made with a long-term perspective in mind and Torres is young enough to offer Arsenal good value now and in the future.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Torres did not do so well in the Premier League at City and he is also now struggling to play at Barcelona, which could be a sign he might not be made for a top club.

However, he is still very young, which means we can groom him into a player that can deliver value to the team if we add him to our squad.

But he is very likely to cost us a lot of money, which might not be worth it, considering there is no guarantee he will succeed if he joins us.

  1. arsenal was linked to leroy sane just a couple of weeks ago, now they re linked with torres, who’s next? arsenal isn’t manchester city lite.

  2. Would not be my first choice but not a bad option to look at if we can’t get Felix or Mudryk over the line. Can operate on the RW/LW or can play down the middle if push came to shove and we could get him for decent price if the rumour was true that last summer Barca were considering our offer of £26M before Xavi intervened.

  3. Torres was pretty decent for City and its unfortunate he is not doing that great at Barcelona. That said, I am sure he would be a great signing and Arteta having already worked with him at City would be an advantage.

  4. This is one for the VAR in my opinion, whatever the on field manager does here I will support.

    Torres wasn’t really rooting up any trees in the premier league, but after what the gaffer has achieve with the Citizens out cast. I will support him taking any player from the Citizens or that had any connection, his judgment is that good with the citizens related players.

    So I go to VAR for this one

    1. It’s a hard pass for me. I feel this guy is super overrated. His work rate is suspect and with whatever ability that didn’t shine through in what I’d call an average Barca squad.
