Report: Arsenal annoyed by Fiorentina's Torreira bid; refuse to respond

Arsenal have been left so annoyed by the latest offer from Fiorentina for Lucas Torreira that the Gunners have decided to not even respond to the bid, according to a report from Fiorentina.it.

Offloading Torreira has proved to be a lot more complicated than Arsenal may have anticipated. The Uruguayan was a regular fixture for I Viola this past season.

Reports earlier in the campaign suggested that it was almost a formality for Fiorentina to sign Torreira permanently. However, as the summer loomed, the situation started to change.

Fiorentina reportedly decided to not trigger the option to sign the midfielder for £12.8 million. Instead, they want to pay considerably less for the 26-year-old.

In fact, reports claimed Arsenal were about to receive a £6 million bid for Torreira. That offer is in, it seems. And it would appear that it did not go down at all well in North London.

Fiorentina.it reports the bid really annoyed the Arsenal hierarchy. And the Gunners have now decided to not even respond to the offer.

It is suggested that the relationship between the two clubs started to deteriorate after the January transfer window. Arsenal hoped to sign Dusan Vlahovic. But they ultimately missed out.

Arsenal annoyed by Torreira bid

Torreira should be furious with Fiorentina. He was arguably one of their best players this past season. And the fans want the midfielder to stay in Florence.

So, the offer is somewhat insulting. Admittedly, he only has one year left on his contract. But players with 12 months left on their deals will move for considerably more this summer.

Torreira has the ability to be an ‘incredible‘ player. So Arsenal should demand more.
