Torreira set for yet another transfer after poor spell at Atletico Madrid

Mundodeportivo says that Torino is eyeing a move for Arsenal loanee, Lucas Torreira.

The Uruguayan found playing time very hard to come by at Arsenal and he left the Emirates for the Wanda Metropolitano.

The Spaniards even sold Thomas Partey to Arsenal, a move that should have helped Torreira to see more football.

However, that never happened, and the midfielder is now back on the bench at another team.

He has started just two games for them this season as it appears that he isn’t exactly what the Spaniards expected when they loaned him from Arsenal.

The report is now saying that Torino is looking for a top player that would help them survive relegation, a task that has drawn them back to him.

The Italians were one of the teams that wanted to sign him in the last transfer window, but he chose to move to Spain instead.

Even though he isn’t a regular at Madrid, the report says that Arsenal would struggle to get the Spaniards to release him from his current loan agreement with them.

This is because Atletico isn’t expecting too much movement in the transfer window that opens in a few days.

    Actually Martin, they didn’t sell him to us, we met his release clause (Partey that is) and I suspect AM will play hard ball over Torreria’s season.
    I think that would actually benefit MA, as he would have the time to assess the midfielders currently at his disposal.
    At least we know that clubs are interested in him if MA decides to let him go.

    Let him stay there then sell him in the summer with a few others with the rest of the out of contractors.

    Bring Matteo back after the season and see where he is at mentally because he is a good player to be alot better in time to come. Young and arrogant but a baller!

    It’s the young guns who need to take over now. The big boys have failed us year upon year so time to look at the Academy with a few special signings like Partey & Gabriel.

      Sean, I think Torreria is 24 and Guendouzi is 21, so both are “young” players and I guess it’s just a personal opinion – I rate Lucas, especially for his attitude.

      Neither player seems to have impressed MA and it seems to be a problem getting back into his thinking – again, both players have transfer value, so at least MA should have some money in the transfer window if he wants it.

        Hi Ken… Lucas doesnt want to be in England but I did like him alot when he came but Matteo was hard done by imo. Great young player only to get loads better, Franceu21Capt & has that desire we lack at times.

        Then again to your point both Values may increase to our benefits but not playing Geundouzi in future may come back to bite us along with Balogun. Bennacer, Gnabry and others have shone once left st a young age.

        Be interesting with these two to see what happens in the future along with Saliba but all have value.
