Since joining Arsenal all the way back in 2018 from Italian side Sampdoria, Torreira’s time in London has always failed to live up to expectations.

Despite being with the club for three-years, the South American midfielder has made less than 90 appearances, in all competitions, for Mikel Arteta’s side.

In an attempt to prevent his career from completely stalling, the 25-year-old was allowed to join Atletico Madrid on-loan during last summer’s transfer window.

Despite being a regular in Diego Simeone’s matchday squads, according to recent claims from ESPN, Arsenal’s on-loan star could be set for a permanent move back to his native South America.

It has been reported that Argentinian side Boca Juniors want to add the experienced midfielder to their ranks with Torreira also keen to make the switch.

Having paid nearly £26m for Torreira, Arsenal are undoubtedly going to suffer a loss, however, ESPN claim that loss will be within the region of £10m as they slap a £15m price tag on the Uruguayan’s back.
