WOW! Arsenal fans to see £26 million midfielder Torreira make summer move? after ‘cheeky’ offer made
AC Milan have made a cheeky opening offer to Arsenal for midfielder Lucas Torreira, with the Gunners open to selling the midfielder.
Now that the transfer window has opened up, there has already been a lot of transfer talk about whom Gunners boss Unai Emery could acquire and help get the club back challenging for the Premier League titles and playing Champions League football.
But one of his summer recruits from last season has taken the headlines over the past few days after opening up about his future plans after Arsenal, with Torreira hinting that he would be open to the idea of making a quick return to Seria A.
The Uruguay international has become an integral part of Emery’s plans this season, with many believing he is one of the best buys of last summer’s transfer window.
It’s understood C Milan’s new manager, Marco Giampaolo, has identified Torreira as his ‘dream’ signing after working with the Uruguayan at Sampdoria.
Reports have also suggested that Torreira would also be happy to return to Italy and be reunited with his former manager, with Gazzetta stating the 23-year-old isn’t satisfied with his adventure in England.
And according to Italian outlet SportMediaset, Milan want to take the former Sampdoria man on a two-year loan for €5-8m, with an option to buy for a further €30-33m, taking the total to €38m.
The news that Arsenal are interested in selling Torreira will be a massive blow for the club, especially since he has become one of the most influential players at the Emirates.
And to be honest, letting him go would be a massive mistake unless he told the club that he wants to go, which he has not just yet.
Arsenal cant sell their best players to raise funds to bring in immediate replacements, Emery needs to be backed or he may aswell just call it a day at the club.
