Two Italian sides battling it out for Arsenal outcast

Lucas Torreira was struggling to play for Arsenal before he left them in the summer.

He moved to Atletico Madrid on loan for the rest of the season, but things haven’t improved for him on the playing front.

The Spaniards haven’t been impressed enough to play him regularly even though they sold Thomas Partey in the same transfer window.

Todofichajes is now claiming that Atletico are prepared to allow him to leave the club next month.

This decision has seen teams become interested in signing him, and it claims that Torino has returned to sign him.

The Italians were keen to sign him in the last transfer window, but when Atletico came into the picture, the Uruguayan decided to move to Spain instead.

Torino has now reignited their interest in the 24-year-old, but they are not the only Italian side interested in him.

It says that Fiorentina is now looking to land him and the Viola will compete with Torino for his signature.

Arsenal is open to selling the midfielder also, and it says that the Gunners will allow him to leave them for 15m euros.

If Arsenal can sell him permanently, it will help them raise the funds that they need to add more players to their squad.

    Arsenal should be keeping him and selling Xhaka and / or Elnenny.

      Disagree. He is not suited for a physical game. We wish he could have been like Kante but just is not

  2. Wolfgang says:

    Agreed. The epl is very physical. Much as I admire him for his boundless energy and enthusiasm, u must have the size and strength to cope with the
    thugs in the epl.

    Also agree, if we can offload for 15m and maybe still move on Xhaka now for 15-20m i think we can utilize our existing youth and push these two aging strikers harder till end of season, I think Lafayette maybe next out, we need to cash in on him before he truly dries up.

    Arsenal value Buendia at €16 million, yet are prepared to sell Torreira for €15 million?

    1. Yossarian says:

      Provided both players are happy with it (Torreira to Italy & Buendia to Arsenal) that sounds like a no-brainer to me – Get it done ASAP!
