Uruguayan winger reveals Arsenal want him after he impressed Arteta in pre-season (plus video)

Another talented winger, Facundo Torres, who plays for Orlando City in the MLS, has expressed a desire to join Arsenal after the Gunners made contact with his club after watching him in the pre-season tour game against the Gunners, and he believes that Arsenal has plans to sign him.

The Uruguayan international told 90 MINS: “Orlando City confirmed to me that there was contact with Arsenal, but then I left for the World Cup, and I didn’t want to hear about a potential transfer at that point,” he told 90 minutes.

“So the conversation stayed there, but now that I am back with the team, we will see where the conversation goes.”

He added, “I would love to play in Europe.”

“It’s a dream I’ve had since I was a kid. At the moment, I am focused on Orlando City. But La Liga or the Premier League would be my targets, and that’s where the rumors are coming from. But yeah, I would absolutely love that.”

Torres must have piqued Arsenal’s interest when he was dominant against them in preseason, scoring in Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Orlando City. After missing out on their main winter target, Mykhailo Mudryk, Arsenal is looking to rebound with another reliable attacking signing.

We’ll have to wait and see if Torres can be this signing, but his highlights show why he could be a good buy, and he must obviously have impressed Arteta and Edu when he played against Arsenal.

Arteta just needs to sign an attacker this month. Yes, as it is at the moment, you can’t see any flaw in his attack, as they’re scoring the goals they want, but let’s consider what’s at stake: the PL and the Europa League.

There is no point in risking it without a few more reliable backups, is there?.

  1. Surely he isn’t expensive, we need backups asap, Viera, Smith-rowe and Marquinhos aren’t strong enough to effect the same aggressiveness as the present lineup,
    This is our chance at the EPL title, next season would be war.

  2. I’d prefer the other Torres, the one who plays for Barca. He is familiar with the EPL; is not playing as much as he’d want to, I think; and he’ s worked with our manager at City before.
    Arsenal should work on this one please

    1. The problem with Arsenal is they like last minute deals. After you lose one target then you say you can now spend big. Why not spend big from the time the transfer windows open? Winning the league and playing champions league football can’t not come cheaply. Learn from your past. We are tired of all your transfer rumours. Last season we slipped up inthe last 5 games and it costed us the top 4 spot

  3. It is easy to identify top player even by watching video clips. Torres looks a player who can do amazing things at Arsenal. Let’s not waste time this boy must be signed with immediate effect.

  4. This guy is not much better than marquinhos.he is a skillful winger but he’s slow and wouldn’t make it in the EPL as a winger.if we need a RW,Moussa Diaby is the best around right now

  5. Seems like the most sensible option to me. January is usually an inflated market in Europe so going for a player with low initial cost, potential to develop and resell for profit while backing up Saka with a player with more experience (part of the Uruguay set up too) makes a lot of sense.

  6. Isn’t exactly pulling up trees in MLS is he?

    If he is an option I’d rather pass, save the money, and give that game time to Marquinos and Nelson.

    Aside from cup games not sure how he would improve our team or impact the PL.

  7. MA and Edu need to go straight to Orlando and sign this talented winger, Facundo Torres. That is my opinion.

  8. Can MA and Edu just go all out and sign the talented Uruguayan winger Facundo Torres before the other drama comes in…….
