Rumours surrounding Arsenal man debunked as untrue

It seems that Lucas Torreira will be moving to Italian side Torino after all, despite the reported interest from AC Milan and Atletico Madrid.

This is because those rumours are untrue and only a tactic to get the Italians to pay more for the midfielder, claims TuttoSports.

The Uruguayan is a target for a number of teams in this transfer window after Arsenal made him available for transfer.

Italian sides, Fiorentina and Torino have been serious about signing him, but the latter seems to have won the race.

Torino is looking to land him on a season-long loan deal that will be made permanent if he meets a number of clauses.

Arsenal are not entirely convinced about their proposal and they have kept an open mind.

Because of that, rumours have linked AC Milan with a move for him, but the report claims that Milan has told them they have no interest in the player.

The rumours linking him to Atletico is also untrue it reckons before adding that those rumours are being created to pressure Torino into paying more than they intend to pay for the player.

The Italians are, however, quietly confident that the midfielder will eventually join them.

    just grab the money and hide somewhere. The man is another good for nothing for us. We were conned as usual, even 10 million seems a great deal.
    need to go – Socrates, Kolasinac, Xhaka (or as a sub). We need Ozil to sell jerseys dont we?

      Perhaps he could stand outside the stadium and shout his wares. Imagine this: “Who wants a shirt with my lazy bone idle , leeching name on it then?” Should make a a fortune from the fantasists on this site who still worship this leech!
      This is the closest I ever come to fantasy but I WILL ADMIT I HAVE MANY TIMES FANTASISED ABOUT THAT GLORIOUS DAY WHEN HE FINALLY LEAVES US!

    A lot of things in the window are probably feints to drive up prices (or drive them down). But if Simeone actually did speak with Torreira…. Torreira’s style would suit a Simeone side, and they come from the same part of the world (Uruguay and Argentina). Torreira felt more comfortable in Italy than in England, but he might also feel comfortable in Madrid, speaking his native language.

    Us selling players is as drawn out and frustrating as us buying players. I realise it’s not as simple as we think but just get what we can for Torreira, Sokratis and Kolasinac, I know we don’t want to sell them on the cheap but what we can get for them will help to go towards getting a player in who we really want and need.
