Arsenal ace to make transfer decision today after club make improved offer

Posted by

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira is reportedly edging closer to making a decision on his future amid links with two clubs.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Uruguay international could make a final decision on where to move next by some point today as Eintracht Frankfurt are said to have launched an improved offer for the player.

Torreira has struggled in his time at Arsenal, despite previously looking a top talent in his time with Serie A side Sampdoria, so it perhaps makes sense that he’s now looking likely to move on from the Emirates Stadium.

Di Marzio’s report states that Torreira himself would prefer a return to Italy with Fiorentina, however, so it remains to be seen if he could be tempted by a possible move to Germany.

Arsenal fans will be disappointed that things never worked out for Torreira, but they now have some promising recent signings in midfield in the form of Thomas Partey and Albert Sambi Lokonga.

The Gunners can surely now afford to offload players in that position without having to worry too much about strength in depth in that area of the pitch.

  1. Arsenal is a good club but the managment seems in the wrong direction. I think the good thing to rescue arsenal is just to sack arteta as per now. Arsenal must learn from the lampard story at chelsea. Moggan, ug.

    1. At the end of last season, Arteta was winning. This season and pre-season’s poor start has been damaged by player unavailability. It’s impossible for outsiders to know how directly accountable the manager is. At the same time, the failure to score even once in four games agasinst Premier League
      clubs is a bad omen. Holding is on recent, public record as saying that the dressing room simply lost belief from Auba’s inabilty in particular to give the team something to play for last year. It wouldn’t surprise anyone for Kroenke to call time on Arteta if Arsenal ares till goal shy and in the bottom half of the table after a dozen games.

  2. Toreira was not given enough time to prove to us his worthy. In most of the games he showed us his fighting spirit. There must be something wrong in our couching staff. Long live Arsenal.

  3. To be fair, why are the coaching staff to blame? Is that the case with our faltering forward line as well. As outsiders, we simply don’t know how Torreira behaved under instruction. Genius players make their own rules. Good players need to fit in. Torreira is the latter.

    It’s the same with our loaned out centre half at Marseilles. He’s now being described by fans and commentators a a genius. He is not quieting Premier League forwards but fits very well where he is. Are we saying we need to dispose of Arteta and his coaching team to make Torreira and the loanee fit with something missing at The Emirates? If so ,who do we gamble on next to fix it . Or would it be fingers crossed that it couldn’t get any worse if,for example ,Conte took charge. Let’s put forward a positive idea instead of the unrelenting complaint. I don’t have an answer. Maybe others do. (PS My dad first took me to Highbury when I was 5. Next month I’m 75. I can still live in hope!)
