Arsenal man finally agrees a transfer to Turkish club

Lucas Torreira has finally agreed to leave Arsenal to join Galatasaray after he initially rejected their approach.

The midfielder had clarified that he doesn’t want to play for The Gunners again.

He has spent the last two full seasons away from the club on loan at Atletico Madrid and Fiorentina.

He did well in that last campaign, and we expected him to join Fiorentina permanently.

However, the Serie A club could not make the finances to sign him available.

He returned to the Emirates and has been searching for a new home.

Galatasaray emerged as his most serious suitors after they reached an agreement with the Gunners long ago.

However, the Uruguayan was reluctant, and he even missed a flight to Turkiye.

But Fabrizio Romano claims he has finally agreed to join them, and he could be on a plane to do his medical soon.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Selling Torreira for any fee would be a huge success because we need to get rid of all the players that made us underachieve for years.

Mikel Arteta is building a new team that will challenge for different trophies and we don’t need anyone that doesn’t fit into the plan.

Hopefully, there would be no complications in this deal, and they will successfully complete it.

  1. The so called deadwood is now being steadily shifted, though for less money than we had hoped, all round.

    As much as the money raised is important , getting players gone from Arsenal who are widely accepted as not being good enouigh , is IMO of vital importance.

    Real top teams like City and Liverpool NEVER carry the like of Elneny, Torreira, Bellerin etc into new seasons. Nor should we !

  2. Torreira and Bellerin don’t want to be Here. But I don’t mind having Elneny and let’s add Holding also as a 24th and 25th pick in the let’s say ideal 25 man team. They know their status and know they will play only if several players in their position are unavailable. They don’t have problem with that, they are happy at Arsenal and give their 100% when they get to play. They are not world beaters but they are good enough to cover. So maybe you could add a player with more quality but would he be happy with sitting on the bench knowing he will possibly play just several games in the season. And if he wouldn’t how would that affect the locker room and atmosphere?

  3. there must always be an unwritten rule that states,if any player, regardless of who they are, do not want to be at the emirates, then ship them out as soon as possible,and at any cost.this player was a very costly mistake by the management team,and, it should remain at that.lets hope the sloppy purchasing of bad players have now stopped,permanently.i know every club make some daft purchases over the course of a season,or,two. but i think the arsenal are the leaders in this particular contest. we have far too many deadwood and daft players on our books,still !, and i do include xhaka in that lot.this season will be artetas making ,or,breaking.i, for one, will be hoping it will be the former.

  4. If you were running Galatasaray, would you want a player who clearly doesn’t want to join, to the extent that he doesn’t get on the plane for his medical?

    What will that do to squad morale? Most decent coaches / clubs would tell him to take a running jump.
