Italian side waiting to see if they can land Arsenal midfielder

The Italian side, Torino, is waiting to see if they can land Lucas Torreira from Arsenal, according to Calcio Mercato.

Torreira is one player that has struggled to impress Mikel Arteta and the midfielder might be on his way out of Arsenal.

The Uruguayan joined the Gunners from Sampdoria in 2018 and he was one of the stars of the team in his first season.

However, his second campaign at the Emirates was a mixed bag after he dropped out of the starting XI and even complained of being played out of position by Unai Emery.

Mikel Arteta’s appointment didn’t change much in that regard with the Spaniard favouring the likes of Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos over him.

He has been linked with a return to Italy on a number of occasions and Torino is the latest team to show interest in him.

The report claims that the Italians are close to signing Lucas Biglia from Milan on a free transfer but signing Torreira is their top priority and they are waiting to see if the chance to sign him will open up.

Torreira has flirted with the idea of leaving Arsenal for some time and he even suggested a while back that it will for good if he left Arsenal.

    Sure, offer Arsenal cash and things will open up. Don’t loan Torreria tho, cash sale or they can walk on.

    Lucas is one of our main middle fielders, we shouldn’t let him go… It is true that he did not have enough minutes, but I still believe he can offer something.

    If we have put ten players up for sale, as is being reported daily, what’s are they waiting for?

    Torreira was one who was, supposedly on the list, so all they have to do is meet Arsenal’s valuation…or negotiate.

    Perhaps. all this talk about ten players being listed is just media BS and Torreira is not for sale anyway – as I say, why don’t we just wait for the club to announce what’s happening officially?

    We will have a large fixture list to fulfill this coming season and the club will need a big squad – I predict four will leave as a maximum, with three (including Willian) coming in.

    We need good money to replace him.
    He is a decent reliable player.

      👍 Exactly don’t give him away! He may not be big and physical enough for a top EPL side, but thrives in Seria A.

    Torreira will soon leave , hopefully this window but though his attitude to games is terrific, he is physically much disadvantaged in our tough, rough Prem and has been found out. SAD BUT THATS LIFE.
