Great chance for Arsenal to offload outcast as Serie A side make him a key target

Posted by

Arsenal’s midfield has been an issue for a while and Dani Ceballos returning to Real Madrid will only make it weaker, but it still doesn’t feel like Mikel Arteta wants to turn to the fringe players.

Instead of giving them a chance it looks like Arsenal would rather sell them to raise funds for new signings, so Lucas Torreira is a prime candidate to move on.

When he arrived he was touted as a scrappy little midfielder who was strong defensively, could dictate the play and he was effective from distance, but we’ve not really seen that.

A report from Gianluca Di Marzio has indicated that Serie A side Fiorentina have made him a key target this summer, and it might actually be an ideal move for everyone.

Arsenal would get some money or at least clear his wage off the bill to finance a new signing, while he will get the chance to go back to Italy and re-establish himself in a league that’s better suited to his abilities.

It’s not clear if Arsenal would want to have a replacement lined up before letting him go, but it does look like his time at the Emirates is over.

  1. Either sell Torriera to Florentina for 27 million and use that money for what we need and that being Diawara of Roma a defensive midfielder and at 22 yrs old wouldn’t cost the earth in wages and will offer a sell on price later on and will only get better and better as the years go by… or swap Torriera for Diawara its a no brainer !! Partey is and has been a pipe dream !! at 28 yrs old he Partey will want a dumper wage deal and champions league football !! Diawara on the other hand has years on Partey and would except no champions league for a year or 2 and lower wages to play in the Premier league !! Diawara is a better defensive midfielder than Partey !! he loves to defend and is disciplined ie holds his position and doesn’t roam forward like Partey does. DIAWARA is a brilliant young player EDU get it done and stop dreaming of getting Partey that was never going to happen !! so wake up and do what is needed and right for the team and the club get Diawara !!

  2. Diawara might not be you marquee signing but is one hell of a defensive player that will turn into a marquee player !! get it done !! sell Torriera to Floretina or swap him to Roma for Diawara !! get it done now before we miss the boat and end up with nothing and panic buy someone we do not want or need like we do every year !!

  3. Sell him and use that money to bring in a hard rock in our DM & tht’s the thing we’re lacking in our team+creativity
