Fabrizio Romano confirms Arsenal will earn a transfer windfall from another loanee

Lucas Torreira looks set to be the next player to earn Arsenal some money in transfers.

The former fan favourite quickly fell out of favour under Mikel Arteta and the Spaniard sent him out on loan to Atletico Madrid last season.

He didn’t get enough playing chances at the Spanish club even though he won a league title.

He is spending this season on loan at Fiorentina in Serie A. The move has been a successful one.

The Gunners agreed to a fee for his permanent signing when he moved to the Florence club.

They are now set to trigger that option and complete his signing, according to Fabrizio Romano.

He tweeted: “Fiorentina are more than happy with Lucas Torreira. Talks on to reach an agreement on (a) permanent deal with Arsenal – there’s €15m buy option clause included in (the) loan deal. 

“Arsenal are open to let him go, it’d mean €25/26m from Torreira-Fiorentina and Guendouzi-OM deals.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

One great thing Mikel Arteta has done as Arsenal’s boss recently is helping us offload the players who don’t fit his system.

While doing that, we have earned some good money as well.

Torreira was a crowd favourite in his first season at the club, but he doesn’t really fit into the system the current manager uses and he has to leave.

  1. I wonder if we are obliged to sell him for that price? I mean he’s been very good for Fiorentina, could fetch even more..

    1. Thank you.
      Is it an obligation to buy or option? I’m sure there are other Italian teams that would love to have him. Can’t a bidding war be initiated?

  2. Yeah all were hearing is players leaving £25 million is a joke he’s worth more than say double or £40 million ,but my concern is who is coming out way and not just hear say ,real deals…..


  3. “One great thing Mikel Arteta has done as Arsenal’s boss recently is helping us offload the players who don’t fit his system.”

    Im sorry but great? so to sell players a few of em for peanuts, and terminate the rest ones contracts are great? rather expensive in my opinion.

    Guendozi are very good in france atm and worth alot more than 9.000.000€…. and i do think auba eas worth more than to pay his termination…

    well he gets his way and he gets the points atm but calling it great not really for me atleast.

    1. i very much doubt Arteta determines the contract prices or what they are sold for… thats Edu’s job!

      1. and also Edus for getting them. off the books and getting players in?

        So Arteta cannot be credited doe getting rid of players or brining them. in, right?

  4. Mavropanos £2.5 it’s a joke… list is so long… if he have fu**** saliba up now as well lets just hope he extend his contract, soon 21 and probably better the our 2 starters atm, and for sure the rest CB we keept in the team 2 last seasons!

    1. I am probably better that Arteta and all our CB’s myself.
      My dad is probably better than your dad.
      This “Probably” game is a just funny.

  5. Windfall is plain silly. Fiorentina will simply send Torreira back to Arsenal. They can wait till he runs down his contract down and get him for free. Arsenal know that and will offer to sell him for 10mill but accept 5m. How much did we get for Auba Ozil Ramsey Sanchez Kolasinac Chambers Socritis Mustafi? Windfall? Do they mean apples?

  6. We should go for Darwin Nunez, the 22 year old Uruguayan striker who plays for Benfica. He’s 1.87m tall and has the physique to cut it in the EPL. He’s scored 25 goals in 32 appearances in all competitions for Benfica this season (20 goals in 22 league appearances).

    This guy as been dubbed a hybrid of Zlatan Ibrahimovich and Edison Cavani.

    Though he’s primary a CF and scores most of his goals through the centre, he also posseses the technical ability to play on the LW if Arteta needs to switch up things tactically during a game. He is also very good with headers which gives us the opportunity to utilizse those crosses we like to whip in under ArtetaBall.

    Benfica bought him in September 2020 from Almeria for a then Portuguese record €24 million on a 5 year contract and as of the 2021/22 season he is on a reported weekly wage of £31,000.

    Apparently he was valued at £50 million in January and both Newcastle and West Ham tried to go for him. Newcastle are reported to be preparing an offer of £60 million for him in the summer and are rumoured to be willing to go as high as £67 million.

    It must be noted that he does come with a 20% sell on clause in his contract between Almeria and Benfica.

    I think he’s the next best thing (if not the best in my opinion) after Dusan Vlhahovic and we should go all out for him. Moneywise, we’ll probably be on par if not below Newcastle but hopefully we will have Champions League football and Arsenal is a more prestigious club than Newcastle. That’s our trump card.

    The only way we don’t get this guy if we want him is if the other European big dawgs step in i.e Barca, RM, ATM, Bayern, Dortmund, Inter, AC, Juve, Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man Utd and PSG.

    If we could offer £65 million for Vhlahovic in January we can definitely afford this lad. His current salary is so low we could triple it and still not break the bank.

    The salary issue leaves us room to renegotiate a new contract later in his career if he progresses well or sell him on on affordable wages if he flops. E.g If we sign him now on £100k per week on a 5 year contract and he does well, 3 years into his contract he’ll be 25 years old and then we can renew his contract at maybe £200k or £250k per week or whatever the going rate will be at that time. If we’re not happy with his progress it’s easier to move him on a £100k per week contract.

    I’ve done my scouting. Pass this on to Arteta, Edu and Vinai.
