Roma fans react to links with Arsenal star Lucas Torreira
A number of Roma fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from Calciomercato.It claiming that Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira is a potential loan option for Jose Mourinho.
It would be no surprise to see Torreira leave the Emirates in some capacity this summer.
The Uruguay international is seemingly yet to convince Mikel Arteta. He spent last year out on loan with Atletico Madrid.
And it seems that he could be on the move once again in this window. Calciomercato.It reports that he is one of the players wanted by Roma.
The Giallorossi, of course, spent much of the window trying to sign Granit Xhaka. But with Xhaka staying in North London, it appears that they could now target Torreira.
The report notes that they may set their sights on a loan. He is on around £74,000-a-week at the Emirates.
It is suggested that he is not at the top of their wishlist. But a lot can happen with the deadline looming.
‘Could be smart’: Roma fans react to Lucas Torreira loan reports
The news has prompted plenty of reaction amongst Roma fans on social media. And it seems that there are mixed feelings.
Some are not convinced by Torreira. And there are concerns about his wages.
Others however, feel that he would be a brilliant signing. And they would be delighted if the Arsenal man came in to fill the void.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Roma fans have reacted to the reports…
I’ve been wanting this guy on Roma for years now. Lucas Torreira has the EXACT profile Roma needs in the midfield. Mr. Regista, reminding us all of one David Pizarro. pic.twitter.com/R3mDeLPUov

I think he would either have to take a pay cut or Gunners cover part of his wage if he were to come to Roma.

Torreira to Roma could be smart. We get him on a 1 year loan. If he performs we buy him permanently and if he doesn’t we don’t buy him simple as that.

Better players are available on a loan imo.

I don’t get it but I trust Jose and the club if he is the chosen one

Torreira very similar style with Pizarro. Like him.
