Mikel Arteta Isn’t Counting On Lucas Torreira

The club are confident of reaching a loan deal, which would include an option to buy, and Torino are the team closest to signing the Uruguayan.

According to ‘Sky Sports’, Torino have gained ground in the last few days for Torreira. Arsenal continue to negotiate for the Uruguayan, who will leave the club during the summer, and everything points to that he will do so on loan.

At 24, the player still hasn’t fully jelled under Arteta. For that reason, the club would look for a loan that would give him minutes and protagonism. It would also include an option to buy that would reach 24 million euros.

On the other hand, according to the source, Torino could pay the option to buy in two payments. The Turin side will have to hurry to complete the deal for Torreira, as there are other interested suitors.

Torreira is an Atlético Madrid and Fiorentina target. The latter are offering the Uruguyan a starting role, therefore it could play in their favour in the race for the midfielder.
