Image – Arsenal fans want Lucas Torreira to stay after impressive body picture

Lucas Torreira is one of the Arsenal players that divides opinion among the fans.

Some fans think that he is one hell of a midfielder, while others think the Uruguayan is not Arsenal quality and the Gunners should try to sell him.

He hasn’t impressed Mikel Arteta since the Spaniard became Arsenal’s manager and he has used him sparingly.

AC Milan reportedly wants to sign him in the summer and the Italians have been motivated by comments attributed to his agent that he wants a return to Italy.

He got injured in Arsenal’s FA Cup game against Portsmouth earlier in the year and was supposed to be ruled out for the rest of the season.

However, the Uruguayan recently took to social media to tell fans that he is back with a picture of himself.

Arsenal’s fans ignored the caption on the image and focused on the image itself.

In the picture, the Uruguayan’s physique has changed dramatically as he now has harder abs.

The fans commented on the post with most of them begging him to remain with them reports the Daily Star.

Please say you’re back and you’re staying,” one supporter said.

Another commented: “Don’t leave, Lucas.”

“Why is your agent talking s***,”
.
And a fourth added: “Stay with the Gooners – we love you.”

Another one said: “We need you in that midfield every single game.”

With a sixth simply writing: “Please stay.”

    I love Torreira and would want him to stay, he just needs to get more physical and paired alongside a good ball carrying midfielder and he will be a super star.

    If we get Partey he can leave but if we don’t then he should stay put

            You came straight back by Express delivery Declan, but you could have just sent me a Telegraph instead but thanks anyway for being my Guardian, even though I am completely Independant. But the Times they are a changing.

            And I have probably hundreds even more appalling puns too, about all sorts of subjects, so don’t encourage me or I’ll start on my many fish puns, since there is a plaice for them. Or even my apple puns some of which are appalling and will give you the pip. Not at all ap peal ing.

    All athletes should have abs , simply by virtue of being athletes. I see no key difference in his physique as he was not lacking fitness before, but power, overall body strength and most importantly height. Nothing has changed.
    I LIKE HIM, I LIKE HIS ATTITUDE ON THE PITCH, BUT I STILL SAY HE IS TOO SMALL . BY FAR! WE NEED SOMEONE STRONGER, TALLER AND MORE POWERFUL IN THAT KEY POSITION , STOMACH ABS OR NOT.

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Fair assessment.

    2. Ray says:

      How much smaller is he than the world acclaimed Ngolo Kante ?

    Sell. We need dough. This guy isn’t a footballer. He’s a jockey.

    1. SueP says:

      Very funny, but I like him as a player

      1. Robert Acedius says:

        Sorry, mam. I’m a brute. Why not send this flasher to Liverpool? Aintree…

    Acedius, calm your passion down brother. Don’t have to diss him if you disagree.

    Obviously he is looking in good shape, Milan wanting him is perfect, so does Napoli, Milan also like Xhaka and are on Mustafi.

    Good news as Elneny and Miki both wanted where they on loan; get 20M.

    Sell Xhaka and Mustafi, get 40M.

    Swap Torreira + 50M for Koulibaly.

    Swap Laca for Partey.

    Even if sales amount to 50M instead of 60M, we break even and save 700k on (weekly) wage, 400k will pay Partey and Koulibaly wages.

    We save 300k in wages, can increase Auba’s of 100k and extend him for a year & one in option.

    This been possible for last 2 windows and our board nor Arteta this winter did not react. They didn’t want to let Torreira go, Napoli was pushing on Torreira and also looked at Kolas!

    when they picked Pepe for Zaha, they did not consider Emery request but imposed a player who needs to adapt if he ever make it.

    So much risks to impose Pepe because bought on payment plan. Palace as most clubs want. cash, Zaha was cheaper but full payement!

    And of the day, it was a lost for both clubs, Zaha losing spirit and Pepe struggling to adapt!

    We are really in trouble with Kroenke & co. They just can’t get it right.

    This doesn’t cost us any money but improves, completes team and shows ambition; Auba would be thrilled then.

    We seem so lost and hopeless when it is so simple to take right decision.

    Leno
    Bellerin Koulibaly Saliba Tierny
    Partey
    Niles Willock

    Pepe. Auba. Saka.

    Subs : Nelson, Martinelli, Gendouzi, Chambers, Holding, Luiz, Kolas, Ozil, Nketiah.

    Nelson and Saka can play in middle as Niles & Willock’s spots. Chambers & Luiz are good as DM; 2 options.

    We have a good set of players but if you miss CB and DM, Auba or anyone’s goals become useless as we see for ages. All over sudden, team looks very strong in every position, well balanced with players who are all running, fast and very hard for any team to handle.

    More attacking team would be

    Leno
    Bellerin Koulibaly Saliba Tierny
    Partey
    Nelson Saka

    Pepe. Auba. Martinelli.

    Nelson and Saka will defend on their flank but mainly add to attack making it a nightmare to handle for any team.
    Once you do this, obliges opponents to defend all game long. Not much defending to do then ..

    We have the team, miss 2 same CB & DM to complete it for years now!

    We certainly can for ages, just a matter of making right move; doesn’t cost anything as demonstrated; just no sense in this board & owner!

    I’m sorry for my awkward sense of humor. Every Asn’l player who have scored in a win against Tottenham should have a place in the heart of a gooner. And LT:s 4-2 goal during the Emery era is a darling. But I want us so bad to get money to sign Thomas Partey (it would mean so much) that I lose my… something.

    1. SueP says:

      I thought you were funny and I’ve read a lot worse on here! Torreira is still a bit big to be a jockey but on a national hunt nag as opposed to the flat he could have a new career if footie doesn’t work out

  8. Mussumba says:

    If we get a better deal for him I suggest we let him go…. This is the kind of signing that made me wonder what on earth was Emery smoking down there at Arsenal… We need a combative CDM who can hold his own against anyone in the middle of the pack…. No offence to Torreira but he can never win a dual against a Van Dijk for instance….. And the same goes to the CB…. Mustafi is just too short

  9. Robert Acedius says:

    How about a bad joke on Jonathan Swift?

      Lilliput ??
