Report: Arsenal ace Torreira reaches agreement with Lazio
Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has reached an agreement with Lazio over a transfer.
What’s the story?
According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, the Uruguay international is one of the most ‘appreciated’ profiles by Maurizio Sarri.
Reports over talks with the Italian outfit only emerged five days ago, displaying the swiftness of the agreement.
Torreira has endured a tough time in recent seasons. He played a bit-part role upon Mikel Arteta’s arrival in 2019.
It continued last season, where a strained relationship with Diego Simeone meant the ace only made 26 appearances during a loan spell in Spain.
However, it was still a successful year as Atletico Madrid won the La Liga title.
Torreira departure boosts possibility of potential arrivals for Arsenal
Arrivals are key for the Gunners with the transfer window entering its last legs.
An exit for Torreira can boost the possibility of arrivals at Arsenal amid reports of an agreement with Lazio.
Arsenal are already in advanced talks with Aaron Ramsdale over a transfer, which should be completed very soon.
Add to that the chase for Tammy Abraham, Corentin Tolisso and a right-back and funds will be crucial.
The club’s finances are already being stretched after they took a loan from the Bank of England.
That’s where the diminutive midfielder enters the fray. His exit will add some much-needed funds so Mikel Arteta can strengthen his squad.
