Arsenal midfielder wanted by Napoli

Torreira to Napoli?

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has reportedly emerged as a target for Italian side Napoli ahead of the winter transfer window.

Torreira has struggled for regular gametime in the Premier League this term and he has managed just four starts with two of them resulting after the recent snub of Granit Xhaka.

According to Calciomercato, the Uruguay international is currently unsettled at the Capital outfit, considering he has yet to adapt to the style of living in England.

It is added that he is eager to make the return to the Serie A and Napoli could potentially compete with AC Milan for his services when the transfer window reopens.

The Gunners snubbed the chance to sell Torreira during the summer transfer window and they could follow the same trend at the turn of the year, particularly with Xhaka tipped to part ways with the club.

Xhaka has not featured for the north London giants since his altercation with the fans during a game against Crystal Palace and reports indicate that he may have already made his final appearance for the club.
