Arsenal set asking price for Lucas Torreira

Arsenal set Lucas Torreira price tag

Arsenal are prepared to part ways with Lucas Torreira this summer, should any club meet their £22m asking price.



The Uruguayan midfielder has struggled for regular game time under Mikel Arteta and he did not even make the matchday squad for the Premier League opener against Fulham.

According to Tuttosport, the 24-year-old could make his return to the Serie A with Torino where he would be reunited with manager Marco Giampaolo.

Giampaolo was previously the head coach of Sampdoria where Torreira made a name for himself before joining the Gunners in the summer of 2018.

Torino are exploring an initial season-long loan for the midfielder with the obligation to buy at the end of the campaign.

However, the Gunners are insistent on a permanent £22m deal and are prepared to accept the payment in the form of instalments.

Meanwhile, the Gunners have recently sanctioned the sale of Emiliano Martinez to Aston Villa for a reported fee of around £20m.
