Arsenal exit rumours: Guendouzi, Torreira 0

Posted on June 12, 2022 by Veselin Trajkovic

Matteo Guendouzi is set to leave Arsenal on a permanent basis after an obviously fruitful spell with Olympique Marseille in 2021/22. As revealed by a number of sources, the Gunners should receive around over €11 million (£9.3m) for the player whose contract would otherwise run until the summer of 2023.

Lucas Torreira has revealed, or rather confirmed what the whole football world guessed, that he wants to leave Arsenal and join Fiorentina on a permanent transfer this summer.

The Uruguayan midfielder knows the Italian game very well, having joined Pescara at the Under-19 level and earned first-team promotion there in 2015. He also played for Sampdoria, before moving to the Emirates in 2018 for a reported fee of around £25 million. Unai Emery had just succeeded Arsene Wenger as the Arsenal boss and he seemed rather keen on Torreira anchoring his midfield section.

Arsenal in talks with Fiorentina over permanent Torreira deal 0

Arsenal and Fiorentina are currently discussing the necessary details to turn the current loan deal for Lucas Torreira into a permanent one at the end of the season, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Torreira arrived at the club from Sampdoria in 2018, when the team was still run by Unai Emery, but since Mikel Arteta took the reigns, the role of the Uruguayan midfielder diminished by the week, until he was eventually loaned out to Atletico Madrid for the 2020-21 season. There was still no place for him in the team when he came back from the Spanish capital last summer and he quickly moved on to Fiorentina.

Transfer rumours: Saka, Torreira 0

There has been talk lately about the apparent uncertainty when it comes to the future of Bukayo Saka, with the winger said to be willing to consider moving away from the club unless the Gunners qualify for next season’s Champions League. Come the end of this season, the winger will have two years remaining on his contract, and though the club are believed to be keen to reward his recent contribution with improved terms and prolonged deal, Saka himself is just as cautious about recommitting as he was in the spring of 2020, when a long saga ended with him signing his current contract.

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.

According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, Arsenal have submitted a bid of around €15 million for the services of Anderlecht’s Albert Sambi Lokonga. The Belgian club want closer to €20m to part ways with the 21-year-old, but they aren’t opposed to a sale and there is a feeling that a deal will be struck in the near future.

Willian keen on Chelsea return 0

Willian joined Arsenal from Chelsea as a free agent last summer. The Blues reportedly worked very hard to extend his contract but refused to offer him a three-year deal, complying with their well-documented policy of being extra careful with long-term contracts for players over 30.

The addition of Willian to Mikel Arteta’s ranks for free seemed like a shrewd move at the time – a proven player of vast Premier League, Champions League and international experience, one off whom younger attackers could potentially pick up a few tricks, but who could also give direct, notable contribution on the pitch. However, things have turned out quite differently, and according to Sky Sports, the 32-year-old winger is being placed back on the market and keen to return to Stamford Bridge only a year after leaving it.

Torreira wants Boca move following mother’s death 0

Posted on April 02, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Lucas Torreira gave a very emotional interview to ESPN Argentina recently, in which he confirmed his mother had passed away and revealed his intention to fulfill the wish of his father to return to South America.

The 25-year-old midfielder arrived to Arsenal from Sampdoria in 2018. His early time at the club was full of ups and downs, but he still made 89 appearances for the club over two years before joining Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan last year. The loan obviously expires soon, and then there’ll still be two years on his contract with the Gunners.

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.

Transfer talk: Torreira, Maitland-Niles 0

AS Monaco are interested in signing Arsenal’s Lucas Torreira on loan for the second half of the season, according to Sky Sports.

The midfielder is already temporarily away from the Emirates, on a season-long stint with Atletico Madrid, but having had only two La Liga starts for far, Arsenal are concerned about his welfare in the Spanish capital.

Technical director Edu recently voiced those concerns.

“Arsenal is concerned about Torreira, his happiness, that he plays and that he is well. We want to know about him how he feels and, later, of course, know what Atletico thinks.
