Report: Arsenal ace Torreira has been in talks with Lazio
Arsenal ace Lucas Torreira has been in talks with Lazio over a transfer this summer.
What’s the story?
According to The Telegraph, The Uruguayan prefers a return to Italy. It’s said there is uncertainty over his future as the club struggle to offload him.
The midfielder previously played for Sampdoria before moving to Arsenal in 2018 for £26m.
Torreira has endured a tough couple of years both on and off the pitch. The ace played a bit-part role with Arsenal during the 2018/2019 campaign.
He subsequently moved to Atletico Madrid on a loan move last summer. However, he suffered numerous problems.
According to the publication, he fell out with Diego Simeone and rarely played. And he also suffered heartbreak after the death of his mother, who he lost to Covid-19.
Torreira posted a picture of himself travelling to Spain earlier in the week.

Speculation surrounding the South American seems to have died down from last season.
The £75k-per-week 25-year-old was extensively linked with a move to Fiorentina during the last two windows.
Torreira is just one example of how little interest Arsenal players garner in the market.
Arsenal have been struggling to make many permanent sales this summer. Matteo Guendouzi and William Saliba have been the only major outgoings, both on loan deals.
The pandemic mixed with the outfit’s horrific lack of ability in the market is setting them back this summer.
