Once again, Lucas Torreira won plenty of praise for his performance for Fiorentina at the weekend, in a comfortable win over Spezia Calcio.

Just over a week ago, Lucas Torreira made his return to the Fiorentina starting lineup in positive fashion, with reports suggesting he’d helped to turn around his side’s fortunes in their 3-0 win.

That earned him another start in midweek, in which Fiorentina slipped to a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Lazio. Fortunately, the on-loan midfielder managed to keep his place at the weekend, and he was quickly back in the team’s good books.

This time facing Spezia Calcio in another 3-0 win, Viola Nation write that Torreira “ran the show from deep”.

They go on to say that the 25-year-old “hoovered up every loose ball” and brought “a spikiness and a swagger that this midfield hasn’t had in years”.

Viola News report that Torreira put in an “excellent performance”, and they claim the loanee has a marked impact on the team when he’s involved.

They add: “We can say goodbye to the experiments in the middle, the former Atletico man manages to give the right tempo to the team, fights, runs, but above all recovers a lot of balls.”

It’s starting to look like Torreira has finally found a team where he can make regular starts competing towards the top of a major European league. If that continues, it seems more likely Fiorentina will activate their option to buy him.
