Arsenal star responds to reports claiming he will be staying at the club

Posted by

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has responded to reports claiming Fiorentina won’t be signing him on a permanent transfer this summer.

According to Di Marzio, Fiorentina are not planning to sign Torreira on a permanent deal this summer, after he spent the season on loan at the Italian club.

Torreira took to Instagram to respond to these reports, uploading a picture of himself wearing the Fiorentina shirt, with a host of emojis suggesting people need to be quiet, as seen in the tweet below.

The Arsenal midfielder is set to return to The Emirates if Fiorentina decide not to exercise their option to sign him on a permanent transfer, but it will be interesting to see where he is next season after his latest Instagram post.

Arsenal could do with strengthening their midfield this summer, so adding Torreira to their squad next season wouldn’t be the worst idea. The Uruguayan midfielder has enjoyed a successful time in Italy this season, playing regularly and chipping in with five goals.

Mikel Arteta may have his sights set on a more significant upgrade, to partner Thomas Partey, but reports suggest they have missed out on Boubacar Kamara, according to Fabrizio Romano.

  1. Arsenal’s biggest issue this season was not quality, it was quality in depth. The first XI were young, but improving, but behind the starters, sue to the obsessive clear out, there was a lack of quality.

    A year ago, Arsenal had 8 center backs (4 too many). Now they have 3 (1 too few). Arsenal have t2 great fullback in Tomiyasu and Tierney, but both have been injured for nearly half their available games since signing – quality reserves are needed when you have first XI players who are fragile.

    At defensive midfield, Thomas Partey has missed over 40% of Arsenal’s games and his back up, Mohamed Elneny, is a squad player. Torreira would have been a valuable resource for the club. Withthe club needing to spend big on new forwards and a central midfielder who scores, Torreira would be a good player to keep.

  2. No doubts about Torreira’s athletic and defensive qualities……… but given his stature, he can’t play in that DM role for Arsenal……. The position requires towering height added to athleticism and defensive nous.
