Report: Fiorentina plan final £6m bid for Arsenal man Lucas Torreira

Fiorentina plan to make a final bid for Lucas Torreira worth around £6 million, and have an alternative target in mind should they fail to land the Arsenal midfielder, according to a report from Gianluca Di Marzio.

Torreira is currently set to return to the Emirates this summer. He has just completed what appeared to be a very successful loan spell in Florence.

However, I Viola have their reservations about paying what Arsenal want to sign the Uruguayan permanently. The two clubs had previously settled on a £12.8 million fee for the 26-year-old.

But reports recently claimed that Fiorentina have no intention of paying that amount. That is despite both the fans and Torreira himself expressing a desire for a deal to be completed.

Fiorentina do intend to make a fresh offer. But it may not be a surprise if Arsenal are not best pleased. Gianluca Di Marzio reports that they plan to bid as little as £6 million for Torreira.

And they plan to switch their attention to Florian Grillitsch should the Gunners knock the offer back.

It does appear that Torreira has no future at Arsenal. And if he does not join Fiorentina, he will likely move elsewhere.

But that does not mean that the Gunners should accept the incoming bid. Reports have since claimed that both Juventus and Valencia want Torreira.

He is a ‘fantastic‘ player who has shone in Italy and played in Spain. And he cost Arsenal £26 million. Surely, the Gunners have every right to ask for more from his next club.

Fiorentina have a target lined up. But Arsenal know it will disappoint a number of their fans if they miss out on Torreira.

There could be a compromise. But Arsenal will feel entitled to largely dig their heels in.
