Can Arsenal finally recover some cash for Selling Torreira to Lazio

Serie A side interested in Arsenal midfielder

According to Sky Sports reporter Matteo Moretto, Italian side Lazio can be a possible destination for Lucas Torreira this summer.

The Biancocelesti who are now managed by former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is interested in acquiring the services of the Uruguayan.

The 25-year-old and the Italian coach had impressive first seasons in the Premier League at their respective clubs. Sarri might have got the sniff of the former Sampdoria man when he shone for the Arsenal team, making 34 league appearances in the 2018/19 campaign.

Fiorentina is the other Italian side which can make a move for the out of favour Arsenal man.

Torreira has openly discussed the idea of leaving England and it is believed that he either wants a switch to South America or to Italy, where he was settled before moving to London.

The midfielder made 89 appearances for the Gunners, scoring four goals and assisting six. Many Arsenal fans are still perplexed as to why it did not work out for Lucas Torreira at Arsenal.

After an impressive first year at the Emirates Stadium, the 25-year-old’s market price rocketed up to 50 million. But after two torrid seasons in terms of form and minutes played, it has dropped considerably to 20 million.

With Arsenal reportedly bracing themselves for a summer squad overhaul, the Gunners London see Torriera as a perfect asset to be cashed in on.

But it could have been so much better for the Uruguayan at Arsenal. Maybe things simply weren’t meant to be.

But at least we may be able to recoup some of our outlay if he moves to Italy.

    I say keep him. Give him one more season. Let him partner Partey and use the Bissouma money on a right back.

    Torreira excel in big games. I’m a fan and I wish he stays.

    Pls don’t sell him, that guy is a big player. A combative midfielder and a destroyer, he just needs psychological help and he will regain his good footballing attributes back. We’ve already seen him in the 2018 world cup and also seen a glimpse of what he can do at Arsenal particularly in his first season. He is tough tackler and very mobile. He is strong and has great character. Pls don’t sell him

    I’ve always had mixed feelings about Lucas, as I rate certain aspects of his game, but I just think the proverbial bridges have been burned, on both sides of the equation, so there’s little to no chance of him returning to the Emirates
