“Deal finally completed” Arsenal finally offloads unwanted midfielder

Lucas Torreira has finally signed his contract as a new player for Galatasaray, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The midfielder has been surplus to requirements at Arsenal since Mikel Arteta became the club’s manager and he spent the last two seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid and Fiorentina.

He was widely expected to join the latter on a permanent deal, but they couldn’t find an agreement with Arsenal to keep him.

He returned to the Emirates for preseason, but he did not finish it with the Gunners and left to find a new club.

Reports linked him with a move to several clubs, but Galatasaray has finally struck a deal to sign him.

Romano tweeted: “Lucas Torreira signs the contract as new Galatasaray player in Milano tonight. Deal finally completed.

“Arsenal will receive €6/7m plus add-ons.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

It is such a blessing to finally offload Torreira because he was the hardest player to sell.

The Uruguayan’s future at the club changed when Arteta became manager.

Previously, he did well under Unai Emery and he was even a fans’ favourite at the start of his spell in London.

We trust Arteta to have made the right decision and we wish him the best of luck at his next club.

  1. I’m glad to see this particular saga over but I don’t understand why he wasn’t wanted.

    He did seem a glass-half-empty kind of personality though.

  2. Lucas Torreira played impressively as at the time he joined the club as a midfielder but he could not deliver Arsenal to level expected. I am wishing him success in his new club.

  3. When he signed for us, the fee was reported at £26,000,000 including add ons.
    He is being sold for a reported £8,000,000 including add ons, just three years later.

    Thank goodness we have kronkie backing up the club.

    1. So investigate why we bought him for 26 grand, not why he went for 8! Why we got rid of him for 8 grand is plain and simple for all the 7 billion inhabitants of this planet to see and judge even if they have 1% football knowledge. Sven was even a bigger disaster than the greatest ever manager that walks on this planet.

      1. A number of fans have been criticising the selling of many players at well below the price we bought them.
        Unfortunately, these fans have been unable to present a practical alternative.
        Most of the suggested or implied alternative ideas have generally been unreasonable or impractical.
        He is a good player, but not top class and certainly not at the level required of a top 4 PL team. To make things even more difficult it seems that he does not want to stay at Arsenal.
