'Stop playing Pro Evolution': Some Arsenal fans rage as club plot 'stinker' of a transfer offer
Some Arsenal fans are fuming over a potential transfer offer the club could soon be submitting to Lazio.
As reported by il Messaggero, the Gunners could offer Lucas Torreira plus cash for Argentina international Joaquin Correa. Arsenal are eager on the attacker, and Lazio are open to selling the forward this summer.
The report also states that Maurizio Sarri is keen on Torreira, who is likely to leave Arsenal this summer. The midfielder spent last season on loan at Atletico Madrid, where the Uruguayan international failed to nail a first-team spot.
Arsenal will be busy this transfer window
Arsenal are could be one of the busiest clubs in the transfer window this summer. The Gunners are keen on the likes of Ben White and Andre Onana, as well as players such as Albert Sambi Lokonga and James Maddison, with Mikel Arteta looking to dramatically improve the quality of his squad for next season.
The Gunners are in the market for an attacker this window. Last season, Arsenal scored less goals than the likes of Leeds United, West Ham and north London rivals Tottenham.
Correa had a solid season for Lazio, with the attacker hitting 11 goals in all competitions for the Roman club.
Indeed, the Argentine international is an interesting option for the Gunners. However, some fans on social media aren’t sold on the 26-year-old attacker, with a few supporters more open to just selling Torreira to Lazio for a fee.
Here’s what some Arsenal fans had to say about the reported transfer off involving Torreira and Correa on Twitter…
