'He looks perfect': Some Arsenal fans buzzing as 'very talented' rarely-seen player back in training
Arsenal fans have waxed lyrical about Lucas Torreira after he posted a picture of himself back in Gunners training.
The Arsenal midfielder spent last season on loan at Atletico Madrid, but didn’t manage to land himself a permanent transfer.
Torreira is reportedly not in Mikel Arteta’s plans and remains linked with a move away from north London.
According to football.london, Serie A duo Roma and Lazio are both interested in signing the Uruguayan on loan.
However, a decision has not yet been made on which club he will join, so for the time being, he will continue to train with Arsenal.
Torreira helped his nation reach the Copa America quarter-finals and was given extra time off to recuperate.
But with Uruguay on the UK red list, the 25-year-old had to travel via another country to avoid having to quarantine in a hotel for 10 days.
As per football.london, Torreira was in Spain, where he could he could train until he was free to travel to England and reunite with his teammates.
On Thursday, the midfielder returned to London, and on Friday he shared a picture of himself at Colney, wearing an Arsenal training top.
Here what Torreira put on his Instagram stories:
Some Arsenal fans are glad to see him back at base and want Arteta to give him another chance:
