Kevin Campbell reckons any fee for Arsenal player is valuable

Lucas Torreira’s spell as an Arsenal player will almost certainly end in the summer after his successful loan stint at Fiorentina in this campaign.

The Uruguayan has spent the last two seasons away from the Emirates on loan, initially at Atletico Madrid.

He flopped in Spain last season, but he has been rejuvenated by his move to Fiorentina in the last summer transfer window.

Arsenal and the Florence club agreed on a fee if the Italians become interested in signing him permanently and they are beyond interested now.

Both clubs will soon meet to conclude talks on the transfer of his signature, and former Arsenal man Kevin Campbell insists selling him will add some important funds to the Gunners’ coffers.

He tells Football Insider: “Anything that Arsenal can bring in for a player who isn’t playing is a massive boost.

“He’s not going to go for huge money, but it’ll be a nice injection of funds.

“We’re coming into the summer now and Arsenal are going to really have to make some moves.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Making money from offloading players you don’t like is not so easy, but when the individual has had a great loan spell as Torreira has done, you can almost certainly sell him for a good fee.

The midfielder will leave for less money than we bought him, but it is better than losing him on a free transfer.

  1. We don’t know yet what the fee will be but I obviously wish him luck.
    Off topic, am honestly sad to see top ref Mike Dean retiring, he has been a credit to his profession. This is my honest opinion but I’m expecting abuse in abundance on here as so many ‘fans’ think he’s against us which is BS 😊

    1. That is a good news to me,arsenal,pl and football world entirely.posterman for incompetent and poor refreeing.why you are sad about it is ur damn business.

  2. Whilst I appreciate that is unlikely Torreira and Guendouzi could fit well into this new squad that we have now created, particularly if Xhaka goes, which I think is equally unlikely

    If AMN came back into the squad as well we could concentrate fully on bringing in the right strikers only in the summer

  3. JA Messiah Kevin Campbell, ONCE AGAIN, states the blee…g obvious. Why those who run JA so worship the third rate brain of this ex journeyman player, is a mystery.
    Anyone know why and if so, please do tell ! ??

  4. Let’s hope this Torriera’s deal marks the end of our fire sale for fringe players – the stupid and costly practice of either giving up good players for free or selling them for peanuts.

    At this stage in his career, Torreira is worth close to 3OM, but I suspect his option price to Fionertina is close to 15M. Another 15M loss down the drain!

  5. Spot on mate,player management and sales have been terrible.hoping this is the final bus stop.
