Former Premier League ace endorses Arsenal man’s possible move to Spanish side

Luis Suarez endorses the signing of Lucas Torreira by Atletico Madrid, according to AS.

The Uruguayan midfielder looks to be on his way out of Arsenal and his most likely destination appears to be Atletico.

He seemed to be on his way to Torino a few weeks ago, but that has changed now that Diego Simeone has declared his interest in his signature.

Arsenal is willing to sell the midfielder that they signed from Sampdoria for 30 million euros in 2018 for 24 million euros, but the Spaniards want to land him on loan for the rest of the season.

The Gunners will allow him to leave on loan, with the obligation to buy, but that is also not being accepted by Atletico.

They simply want to take him on loan and see what happens next. It seems that Arsenal might accept their offer and their approach has been handed a boost.

Luis Suarez has just joined Atletico Madrid and the report claims that Torreira is a player that the former Liverpool striker endorses.

It claims that Suarez had persuaded former Arsenal Head of Football, Raul Sanllehi to pursue a move for the midfielder when they were both at Barcelona before Torreira joined Arsenal in 2018.

    Fabrizio Romano:
    “Atlético Madrid are not going to negotiate with Arsenal for Thomas Partey – they’re still convinced he’s gonna stay this season”

    Noooooo!!!! 🥺

      Sue I don’t take Fabrizio serious when it comes to Arsenal transfer dealings. He doesn’t know jack about Arsenal transfer talks, most of the time he’s a transfer tap-in merchant.
      He said Arsenal weren’t getting Pepe, he said the same about Tierney, recently before we got Gabriel, he said Gabriel was done with Napoli…
      Atletico aren’t confident of anything. The problem is Arsenal are the ones delaying it. Just activate the RC and take the player.
      Need I remind you Atletico offered him a deal before the ending of last season and he has refused to sign it ??
      BTW Arsenal are growing frustrated with Atletico

        So, this could very well go down to the last hour of the window then, Eddie?!
        Maybe I should quit looking and just wait for you to comment on here 😉😁

    I for one would be incensed if we let him go to Atletico Madrid and not get Partey in return.
    It’s simple. If they want Torreira then they give us Partey plus a payment from us of between £15m to £20m. If they carry on digging their heals in for Partey’s full release clause then they can’t have Torreira on loan and have to pay the full price for him.
    Correct me if I’m wrong but as happened with Neymar under Spanish law it’s the player themselves that pays the release clause thus making themselves a free agent. It doesn’t matter where the player gets the money from, just as long as it is paid?
    If true then Kroenke could pay his release clause and we get him on a free. I know I know, that won’t happen but it’s something for you all to remember about our owner.
