Serie A club set timeline for potential Arsenal transfer

Fiorentina are claimed to have put a time limit on the potential transfer of Lucas Torreira from Arsenal.

The Uruguayan midfielder spent the 2021-22 season on loan with La Viola, establishing himself as a regular in their first-team, and it seemed almost certain that they would be taking up the option to buy.

Much to the surprise of both the player’s agent and our club, they tried to haggle over the more-than reasonable €15 Million fee, and claim that they do not believe he is worth such a price. Torreira’s representatives were not believed to be happy with such comments, especially after the role he played in their team this term, and the talks ended badly, but Fiorentina are claimed not to have closed to door on the deal.

InsideFutbol now cites La Nazione in claiming that they are willing to keep the door open for a deal to be done, and will give him until the official end date of his loan spell at the end of the month.

It sounds like Rocco Commisso has shot himself in the foot here, as the fee was more than reasonable for a player of Torreira’s ability, and he now looks set to miss out on his signature. The player was happy in Florence, but is unlikely to be happy that the owner of the club claimed that he wasn’t worth such a lowly fee, which is hardly the best catalyst for a strong relationship between the player and the club.

It seems like the Fiorentina boss played hardball with the wrong crowd, and I’m sure we will be able to receive a fair fee for Torreira’s signature this summer, regardless of the stance of Commisso.

    1. It’s what tends to happen when things are handled so poorly. We’re getting mugged for Mavroporas and Guendouzi sales.

      They watched as Arsenal ripped up contracts, sold others for peanuts and heard us say they were expendable.

      Another example of poor man management, this time front transaction side.

      1. Exactly

        And yes. We will certainly reduce his fee or pay him off. They are expecting it. €15m is actually too much to pay for an Arsenal player, especially when you look at Guendouzi, Mavropanos and Aubameyang

  1. Simply t latest statement in thtgame of pok er involving bluff that so many clubs do all thtime when discussingtransfers That is the realityu and someof the nonsense in the posts above makes me weep wirth frustrationat is gullibility.
    When so many, foolishly too, take every utterance as gospel truth, instead of the tactical game so many play, then no wonder some who believe everything they hear, proceed to panic and make a fuss where none exists. Sigh!

    If you cannot see further than stage one, then for
    goodness sake engage your brain. If it exists!

  2. OT Champions league final kick off half 9 bit late for a champions league final, match might go onto after 1 in the morning in Paris haha

  3. How predictable?what do they expect when you sold Guendouzi for 10M and Macros for 3M?

  4. So, we were willing to let Torreria go for an agreed price… but then Fiorentina said he wasn’t worth that…and now we are being told we should get more for him because he’s worth more than the agreed price… somewhere alomg the line, I lost the plot, but I’m certain it will all come out clearly in the wash, as it is The Arsenal we are talking about.
    Perhaps we should just give him away and ask Stan for more investment?

      1. I despair at our transfer policies over the years DK.
        We never seem to learn anything and it’s getting worse in my opinion.
        I can only assume that it’s Edu who fixes these deals, after Mikel decides who he wants to leave / keep.

        I guess you’ve noticed how many players MA has re-signed from the “dross” he inherited?

        O.T. it seems that klopp’s liverpool have just equalled George Graham’s record of winning both domestic cups – trouble is, GG was the first to do it 😂😂🏆🏆.

  5. As it is the silly season with transfer rumours, until an actual signing or a sale takes place then it’s fun for some peeps to comment on the rights and wrongs of Arsenal’s transfer policy, but for me, I prefer to wait and see what actually transpires. Always interesting to read other opinions though

  6. Is miki back haha thats what happened to him we Said 15 M was to low so we loaned him out Again then have Roma a free player dont let me talk about gibbs to west brom or all other miss managements
