Lucas Torreira is a wanted man and there are a number of top clubs willing to pounce on his unhappiness playing out of position under Unai Emery, but will Freddie make him any happier?
Lucas Torreira’s agent has already made it clear that his client is not happy so we can all hope that a change of manager, even if it is only getting rid of one without finding an adequate replacement, will be enough to soothe his itch to head back to Italy.
AC Milan are also said to be interested, and have been for a while. As is Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid who would certainly offer a player of Torreria’s temperament and playing style a tempting outlet.
Arsenal can ill-afford to lose a player like Torreira and it seems highly unlikely that even this club at this moment in time would opt to sell the 23-year-old mid-season.
The 90 minutes he played against Brighton was the first time in the league this season he hasn’t been brought on or off. It also happened to be in a more defensive role than where Emery like to deploy him for reasons known only to himself.
Hopefully, the club have listened to his legitimate concerns.
