Happy club will look to sign Arsenal’s loanee as he impresses

Lucas Torreira is one of the Arsenal players that knew early on that they would not feature in the plans of Mikel Arteta.

The Uruguayan midfielder was shipped out on loan to Atletico Madrid last season, with Arsenal hoping he would impress enough and earn a permanent move to the Spanish club.

However, Torreira struggled for form and couldn’t get enough playing chances under Diego Simeone.

He returned to Arsenal, but he moved out on loan to Fiorentina again in this campaign.

This time things are different as he impresses for La Viola in Serie A.

They are looking to end this season inside the European places and Torreira has been a major contributor to their on-field success.

Corriere Fiorentino via Sport Witness says he has become a key member of the team in Florence and the club usually need him to win matches.

With that kind of influence, Fiorentina will not want to lose him and will hold talks with Arsenal over signing him permanently soon.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Torreira is finally clicking at another club. Hopefully, we can finally offload him permanently.

The midfielder isn’t a bad player and proved his worth at the 2018 FIFA World Cup with his country.

However, he simply doesn’t fit into the system of Mikel Arteta and he has to leave.

    Unless, of course, it’s the system that MA is trying to implement that has seen so many of our players struggling to achieve the form that they produced previously.
    The only player that I think we could say has improved this season, is Ramsdale.

    I think Gabriel has been a better CB this year, and not really sure how Tomi was in Serie A.

    Ken it just seems to me it is the system, or lack of one, that is the problem.

    Is it more likely all the players who transferred in have regressed, or it is a bad system.

      Durand:
      Leno – Tierney – Pepe – Aubameyang – Lacazette – Martinelli – Xaka – AMN – Odegaard at our club….not performing.

      Mavs – Saliba – Guendouzi – Bellerin out on loan…are performing.

      Surely all of the above (and their are probably names I’ve missed) cannot be explained away as the players not being able to play to the “system?”

      1. Durand says:

        Ken I agree, maybe a player here or there who is regressing is on them. But when you have multiple players who are shadows of their former selves, the finger points at the manager.

        Auba chased the Golden boot under 2 managers with vastly different styles of play. Yet has disappeared under Arteta.

        Same 2 managers achieved superior table results with “Deadwood” that Mikel could not get a tune out of.

        I just can’t buy the same excuses after 2 years. I have remained consistent in standards and expectations of managers.

        If they sacked Wenger because they expected more then fine. Sacked Emery because not good enough then ok.

        But to excuse how poor Arteta has been is shocking. To replace Wenger then accept the results under Arteta frustrates and angers me. Arteta should go if we’re not top 4 in May.

      its the system and the playing style….

      some players suit some manager’s system and style while some don’t
