Boost for Arsenal as fresh offer arrives for wantaway midfielder

Galatasaray have come in with am offer to sign Lucas Torreira from Arsenal this summer after his expected move to Fiorentina broke down.

The Uruguayan midfielder has spent the last two seasons out on loan in La Liga and Serie A, winning the Spanish division with Atletico Madrid before enjoying a spell with La Viola, where he picked up three of the last seven Player of the Month awards.

It was a surprise for the north London club when the Italia side refused to trigger his option to buy, and he has since been linked with a number of clubs, and while the rumours have been a little quiet of late, he has now become the subject of an offer from the Super Lig side.

Torreira is a top player, but for one reason or another he couldn’t settle into life at the Emirates, and his football quickly began to suffer because of it. Gala suffered a torrid time in the Turkish league last term, settling for a place in the bottom 10, and may need to convince Lucas that they are ready to push higher up the table again next season.

  1. NO MENTION OF HOW MUCH THE OFFER IS OFFERING!
    We should not expect anything even very near five figures , even though in times before Covid, THAT would have been expected.
    Covid has totally changed the market everywhere and in many respects we have taken a degree of advantage about that, as well as losing out on shifting our deadwood and lesser players.

  2. If he was in Lpool or mancity, then club like Arsenal would have forked out at least 20mil for him. But bad luck he is arsenal so we can presume how we will get rid of him.

  3. Knowing Torreira as we all do by now, he probably doesn’t want to live in Turkey, although he doesn’t want to play for us either. You may have noticed that the guy is really starting to annoy me.

  4. €15million will do just fine.hopefully he agrees and not do bellerin kissing goodbye to proper elite football.

    1. Fk Sadly for us , your hoped for15 mill Euros is a fantasy figue and no club will pay that sort of sum.

      Most who may want to , cannot afford it and those who could afford it, don’t want him. Unsurprisingly, I suggest!

  5. Yet another player who showed so much promise when he arrived, but didn’t fit into the plans of the new management team.
    So, it seems, he can now be classed as deadwood, dross or even a lesser player and YET we expect another club to come in and buy him, while not giving a toss about what the player wants to do!?!?

    If the club wants to sell ANY player, set a realistic price for him and remind fans that, according to them, he is really just deadwood, dross or a lesser player, so don’t expect much… especially if we have to take the player’s wishes into account as well.

    I do believe Torreria has a legally binding contract as well, but let’s not worry about that, just ship him off to wherever and at a price the club wants – he’s only a person we don’t want anymore, so who gives a toss what he might want….. That’s The Arsenal Way we’ve all come to love and respect.

    1. Ken, he is desperate to get away, it looks like he has been forced into a decision just to move on.
