A new report has detailed how Arsenal might be coming to an agreement over the exit of Lucas Torreira.
It was recently reported by CalcioMercato that Arsenal were considering splitting their demands into two easy payments for Serie A side Torino, who are leading the race for his signature.
That report claimed Torreira would arrive on loan with an obligation to buy, with €12 million (£11m) being paid in two installments for an overall fee of €24 million (£22m).
However, a new report from Toro News has an update on the potential deal.
The subsidiary of Gazzetta dello Sport is suggesting that the deal would be permanent, with Torino paying £11 million this summer and the other payment being paid in 12 months’ time.
However, it is also made clear that Arsenal will only ratify the deal if there is a guarantee they receive 100 percent of the transfer fee by the end of 2021.
Installment deals like this can often drag on and Arsenal do not want to be left out of pocket for an extended period, as they look to bring in some talent of their own to continue their resurgence under Mikel Arteta.
So ensuring that the full £22 million ends up in their coffers by next year before sanctioning an exit is simply good business from the Gunners.
