Arsenal and Torino in Torreira talks 0

Posted on September 15, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are in talks with Torino over a potential transfer of Lucas Torreira, according to Sky Sports. The move being discussed is a season-long loan with a view to a permanent one next summer.

The defensive midfielder has been linked with departure before. AC Milan were credited with interest on several occasions, and Fiorentina are still interested. He joined the Gunners two years ago from Sampdoria for a reported fee of £26 million, and though he initially looked promising under Unai Emery, he hasn’t been able to get back on the right track at the club following the arrival of Mikel Arteta at the helm. He made a total of 29 appearances in the Premier League in 2019/20, but only 17 times as a part of the starting XI.

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.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to sign a new contract with Arsenal, according to multiple sources.

Aubameyang’s future was pretty much up in the air for a long time. His current deal expires in 2021, which means it has entered its final 12 months. The club have been keen to keep him for years to come, but they were reportedly willing to contemplate a sale if he doesn’t renew his commitment in order to avoid losing him for free. It has also been reported that the Gabonese forward wanted assurances on the club’s ambitions to compete for major honors before he makes his decision.

According to reports in Italy, Arsenal are currently in talks with AS Roma over a proposed swap deal involving Lucas Torreira and Amadou Diawara.

Diawara started his career in his homeland with a club called FC Sequence. He arrived to Italy in February 2015 and played for San Marino for a short while, before joining Bologna that summer. It cost Napoli €14.5m to sign him in 2016, and three years later, they received €21m for his services from Roma.

Lucas Torreira wins Player of the Month 0

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.
