Arsenal Face Torreira Conundrum
Posted: 28 January 2021
English Premier League giants Arsenal Football Club face a conundrum regarding on-loan midfielder Lucas Torreira in this window. Torreira, who is currently on a season long-loan at Spanish giants Atletico De Madrid, has only started two La Liga games in this campaign for Diego Simeone.
The Gunners signed the Uruguayan international for £26m in the summer of 2018 from Italian side Sampdoria, but has never stamped his authority in Arsenal’s midfield due to limited opportunities afforded to him.
The North London side would rather prefer seeing the pint-sized workhorse play to maintain his value and cash in on him in the summer.
We understand the Arsenal hierarchy are discussing the possibility of recalling Torreira or send him out on loan to another club where he’ll cement a starting berth.
However, Simeone’s side have all the cards as they have a season long-loan agreement with Mikel Arteta’s team, and a compromise would have to be met in order to cut short the deal.
