Report – Lucas Torreira set to complete deadline day loan move

Sky Sports’ Dharmesh Sheth reports that Arsenal’s Lucas Torreira is expected to complete his loan switch to Atletico Madrid before the transfer window closes today.

The Uruguayan has been in Madrid for some days now after the Spaniards hijacked his loan move back to Italy with Torino.

He has fallen out of favour at the Emirates as Mikel Arteta continues to favour other midfielders in the team.

The South American has already had his medical with the Spaniards and he has been waiting for the green light from Arsenal to sign his contract with them.

The report claims that the deal is expected to go through before 23.00 and Arsenal will be due some sort of a loan fee.

The Gunners had been looking for a loan with the obligation to buy so that they can secure a future payment on him. 

The report didn’t specify if they have agreed on that, because the Spaniards had initially been opposed to the idea.

Deadline day is expected to be very busy for Arsenal and Torreira might not be the only player that leaves the club.

The likes of Shkodran Mustafi and Calum Chambers are also not guaranteed starters and they might leave before the window shuts.

    BREAKING NEWS: After playing the long game with Atletico Madrid, Arsenal finally blinked first. They have made arrangements for Thomas Partey to undergo examinations with a private medical team in Madrid

    If all goes well, they will pay his £45million release clause to La Liga

        Too long Sue. We’d probably get Lemar too

        1. Sue says:

          You reckon, GAI?

          1. gotanidea says:

            According to some reports, Arsenal have asked Atletico about Lemar

    If this loan goes well it will up his pricetag and we can at the very least break even on his transfer. Good luck, Lucas. Shame you wont be able to play with Partey 😏

    Im seeing funny things on twitter.

    Edu pulls plug on LT loan, now that they have paid the release on TP and are demanding a permanent deal for LT.

    If that happens i will piss myself laughing.

    1. Okiror says:

      I amidfied of Torreira, Ceballos and Partey can actually match Liverpool Energy, let Edu pull d plug

    2. Winston says:

      Would be nice to grow a pair and shove it right in their faces for once

    3. McLovin says:

      Hahaha that would be so funny!

    4. RSH says:

      DiMarizio saying we didn’t even tell AM we were activating Partey’s clause and just went straight to La Liga instead 😂

    5. durand says:

      Serves AM right. Now that they got the money for Partey, they should pay something for LT upfront and an obligation to buy. Surely the Gov’t won’t take every penny of the transfer money from the Partey deal.
      LT can return; there are plenty of matches with PL, both cups, and Europa games too. Maybe in January he can go and we can get cash in return.
