Transfers: Torreira, Willian 0

Arsenal have reached an agreement with Fiorentina about the proposed transfer of Lucas Torreira, according to multiple sources.

The 25-year-old joined the Gunners in 2018 from Sampdoria, and though he did play an important role in the team under Unai Emery, he never had a proper place in the plans of Mikel Arteta, even though his contract at the Emirates has two years left to run. He spent last season on loan at Atletico Madrid, and it seems another temporary move is now very close.

Fiorentina and Arsenal in advanced Torreira talks 0

Fiorentina and Arsenal are in advanced talks over a permanent transfer of Lucas Torreira this summer, according to reports in Italy.

The midfielder fell deep down the pecking order towards the end of last season under Mikel Arteta, and last summer he was sent on a season-long loan to Atletico Madrid. However, his fortunes obviously haven’t changed despite the change of scenery; he has so far had only three La Liga starts for Diego Simeone’s team, making eight more appearances off the bench. He has found the back of the opposition net once, in their 1-3 triumph away to Osasuna back on the final day of October.

Arsenal transfer rumours: Anderson, Sokratis, Torreira 0

The summer transfer window rambles on and Arsenal have so far been reasonably active in the market. They’ve secured the services of winger Willian from Chelsea on a free transfer and centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille for a reported fee of €30 million (£27m). That, however, doesn’t seem to be the end of the business this summer, if reports of further dealings are to be believed.

According to the Mirror, the Gunners are interested in signing West Ham United winger Felipe Anderson after they were offered the services of the Brazilian on a season-long loan for £5m. The 27-year-old arrived to the London Stadium from Lazio in 2018. Last season he made a total of 27 appearances for the Hammers, scoring once any laying on five assists.

Coming into this pre-season tour of the United States, it felt like there was a great deal of negativity at Arsenal Football Club. They just didn’t seem capable of catching a break, with the Kroenke issue being one of the primary reasons why. Alas, in the last few games over in the States, they’ve been able to distract fans from all of that noise with a series of impressive wins. Last night, that trend continued as they eased their way towards a 3-0 success over Serie A side Fiorentina.

Despite the distraction of the summer transfer window, Arsenal have been able to compose themselves pretty well on the pitch during their pre-season campaign in the United States. They’ve had two games up to this point against Colorado Rapids and Bayern Munich, which has resulted in two wins. The triumph over Colorado was pretty standard, as you’d expect in a Premier League vs MLS clash, whereas the Bayern win was a bit more hard fought – and, as a result, a little bit more satisfying.

Fiorentina striker Khouma Babacar has suggested that he is flattered by the reported interest from Premier League leaders Arsenal.

The Senegalese has been loaned to Modena this summer to gain much needed first team experience, and he has taken full advantage of the opportunity that presented itself, notching 8 goals in 12 Serie B matches.

This has alerted a number of Premier League clubs, and while the talented forward admits West Ham contact, he has revealed that Arsenal have the upper hand at the moment.
