A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react to reports from Calciomercato this week suggesting that Lucas Torreira has told the Gunners hierarchy that he would like the club to consider offers that come in for him.
Torreira has endured a frustrating season at the Emirates. The 23-year-old has started just four Premier League games. And it appears that plenty of supporters feel that he is being used incorrectly by Unai Emery.
He has been pushed forward into a more advanced role more recently. And that has angered some fans who are adamant that the Uruguayan’s best position is in holding midfield.
And it appears that they are not the only ones who are annoyed. Calciomercato has reported this week that Torreira has told Arsenal that he would like the club to consider offers that come in for him.
It is not clear what the Gunners’ stance is. But it seems that a number of the supporters would let the same person go – and it is not Torreira.
Emery is coming under increasing pressure at North London. The Gunners have not won in the Premier League for well over a month. And the Spaniard does not appear to be helping himself with some quite strange decisions.
One of those involves Torreira and the role that he has been using him in. And plenty of Arsenal fans have insisted that the reports further highlight the need to remove Emery.
There will be a lot of anger if Torreira is sold. And some of the supporters have warned that he may not be the last to go if Emery sticks around for much longer.
Here is what some of the fans made of the recent reports…
Rumours that #Torreira wants to move on.Hope this is not true, but if such sentiments have been formed, the club needs to take another look at the head coach who clearly seems to be suffocating top talent, which is no surprise considering he has a reputation for the same #AFC

Unai Emery is the one to leave not Lucas Torreira

If Emery has driven Torreira out of the club that’s the last straw. Torreira is the exact type of player we’ve been calling out for since Gilberto Silva left. Now he either plays him out of position or not at all?!🤷♂️ #afc #COYG

Lucas Torreira was arguably one of our best/most consistent players last season until he got injured. Then since he returned, Emery started to move him forwards & he’s never been the same players since.
Now apparently he wants to leave, Emery is well & truly ruining us ffs. pic.twitter.com/482kKuwaDo

With no Champions League next season as well, Auba will want to leave, Lacazette will want to leave and now we finally have a top CDM in Torreira and he wants to leave as well. Well done Raul and Edu. 👏👏👏#Arsenal #afc #COYG #EmeryOut
