Some Arsenal fans unhappy Torreira is closing in on loan exit
Some Arsenal fans cannot believe the news Lucas Torreira is closing in on a loan move to Fiorentina.
What’s the story?
Fabrizio Romano is claiming the Italian outfit have the option to sign him on a permanent deal for €15m (£12.8m).
It comes a week after reports emerged claiming Mikel Arteta told the ace he was not in his plans. This is despite the South American making it clear he intends to fight for a place in the team.
Torreira loan move indicates potential arrival at Arsenal
The loan move of Torreira indicates there could be a potential new signing at Arsenal in the remaining few days of the window.
Including the 25-year-old, the north Londoners currently have 18 foreign players in their first-team squad.
The maximum number allowed in a squad is 17, a number achieved should Torreira leave.
And with reports from football.london claiming Willian is close to leaving for Brazil, the number will be reduced to 16.
That means there will be place for one more foreign player in the squad. And it would be hard to imagine Arsenal submitting a side with one less non-homegrown player.
Here is how some Arsenal fans reacted to the news…
This is a biggest mistake by Arsenal. You can't choose Elneny over Torreira. It's intending to build a slow and weak midfield against the high penced premier league demands which Torreira can better fit in. Arteta is not the right man to rebuild Arsenal.— Tsongo Joseph (@JosephTsongo) August 23, 2021
If I speak on this guy I’ll be in big trouble and I don’t wanna be in big trouble— Ethan_govender29 (@EthanGovender29) August 23, 2021
Don't understand why we treat him as rubbish. He played some good games for us then was left out and never recovered. Mystery.— Daniele Meloni 🇮🇹🇬🇧 (@DanieleMeloni80) August 23, 2021
Chelsea getting rid of Zouma for £30 million and the best we can do is loaning out players and terminating contracts. How are we so bad at this.— Matt (@vMalkino) August 23, 2021
No fee again, I hate this game— Seb 🇳🇱 (@NotYourWinger) August 23, 2021
Imagine getting rid of a warrior like torreira and keeping elneny— OrganisedMessFC (@BrutallyGooner) August 23, 2021
