Lucas Torreira wins Player of the Month 0

Posted on January 09, 2020 by Harry Kettle

The people have spoken and it’s official: the December Player of the Month for Arsenal to round off the decade was none other than Lucas Torreira. There are, of course, some months in which it’s a bit embarrassing to have an award like this, either because nobody really deserves it or because someone walks to the prize every single time.

This month, though, it’s certainly warranted with Torreira completing a real 180 in recent times in order to become an even bigger and better version of himself. After starting out his inaugural season in English football on a positive note, that quickly went downhill towards the second half of last season for many fans and pundits calling for his head.

Torreira has a future at Arsenal – Emery 0

Speaking to the press in the buildup to Arsenal’s 2-2 draw against Southampton on Saturday, manager Unai Emery said Lucas Torreira, who has been linked with departure for a while, has a ‘big future’ at the club.

The midfielder was reportedly an object of interest for AC Milan as the Rossoneri parted ways with Gennaro Gattuso and replaced the club legend with Marco Giampaolo, the man who coached Torreira at Sampdoria prior to his switch to the Emirates last year. However, the return to Italy did not materialize, and what’s more, Torreira himself spoke out and said he was perfectly happy in North London. Due to a bad start to the season in Serie A, Giampaolo was quickly sacked and Stefano Pioli took over at Milan, but the rumours about their interest in Torreira resurfaced.

Lucas Torreira is unhappy about the new role manager Unai Emery has devised for him.

Following his impressive displays for Uruguay at the 2018 World Cup, Torreira was badly wanted by Napoli. Nonetheless, he arrived at the Emirates for just over £26 million, as a specialist defensive midfielder of great ability to read the game and intercept, to stop opposition players, as well as to distribute the ball.

The end of the year is getting nearer, and with it comes the usual lot of transfer speculations which precedes a transfer window, so let’s take a look at what the media are saying regarding Arsenal.

Lucas Torreira

Less than a year had past from the Uruguayan’s arrival from Sampdoria and the first reports of him wanting to leave the Emirates. During the summer, he was heavily linked with AC Milan, who had just appointed Torreira’s former coach Marco Giampaolo as the manager. Nothing materialized on that front nor was it likely to.

The summer transfer window has already provided us with a series of surprising moments and moves from across European football, as you’d probably expect. Alas, even with that being the case, it still seems like there’s a lot more to come as we look ahead to the remainder of the window. The majority of big name players will probably stay put, but even with that being the case, there’s always the worry that a few of our favourites could suddenly decide that their future lies away from the Emirates.

There has been plenty of speculation surrounding the future of Lucas Torreira recently. The defensive midfielder is reportedly of strong interest to AC Milan, and former Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis, now doing the same job for Milan, is looking to put Torreira together with Marco Giampaolo once more. Giampaolo, who worked with Torreira at Sampdoria, has replaced Gennaro Gattuso as the Rossoneri head coach and keen on the idea himself.

The Copa America has been really entertaining to follow and watch over the course of the last few matchdays, to the point where we’re finding ourselves getting into it more and more with each and every passing game. Of course, even with that being the case, the only real emotional attachment we can have is with an Arsenal player or two – which is where Lucas Torreira comes into the mix.

Milan want Torreira on loan 0

AC Milan seem to have their sights properly set on signing Lucas Torreira from Arsenal. It has been no secret that their new manager, Marco Giampaolo, would love to be reunited with the player he used to coach at Sampdoria, and Milan are determined to do their best to try and fulfill his wish.

For their part, Arsenal are reluctant to part ways with their £26 million investment, and understandably so, given that he was among the first and most prominent signings under manager Unai Emery. Therefore, if any club are going to even hope to prize Torreira away from the Emirates, they must be prepared to fork out a hefty sum.

The summer transfer window is well and truly underway, and clubs and players around the world are looking to make smart moves for themselves in the market.

Arsenal are no exception. With no Champions League football to offer and a reportedly tight budget, they really need their wits about them. So what’s going on with all those reported targets? Well, there’s isn’t really a way for anyone looking from the outside to know, but the media, as is their wont, are talking. Let’s see what they’re saying.

Does Torreira want to leave? 0

Reports have recently emerged linking Arsenal’s Lucas Torreira with a move to AC Milan this summer, and the latest statements by both the player and his agent haven’t been exactly encouraging.

The Rossoneri have confirmed the appointment of Marco Giampaolo to replace club legend Gennaro Gattuso as head coach today (Wednesday). The 51-year-old was in charge at Sampdoria for three years, and he was the one to put faith in Torreira as the defensive midfielder returned from a loan spell with Pescara in 2016. He is now apparently keen on a reunion with the Uruguay international.
