Lucas Torreira

Two Italian Serie A sides are reportedly on the trail of Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira ahead of the January transfer market in five week’s time.

According to the Daily Mail, AC Milan and Napoli want to sign Lucas Torreira who is said to be ready to quit the Gunners.

Lucas Torreira is eyeing an exit from Arsenal after the Uruguayan international became disillusioned with the midfield role given to him by Arsenal manager Unai Emery.

The Uruguayan has been used as an attacking midfielder instead of his normal defensive midfield position.

Lucas Torreira has not been an Arsenal regular this season as manager Unai Emery has preferred the trio of Dani Ceballos, Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka in midfield.

The Uruguayan was able to break into the starting XI due to the absence of Granit Xhaka in the Arsenal team for the last two games.

Swiss international Xhaka had an altercation with the Arsenal fans during a league game at the Emirates Stadium.

Granit Xhaka behaved in a bad way towards the Arsenal fans and that led to him being dropped as the Gunners skipper by Unai Emery.

He is expected to return to the Arsenal squad ahead of the Southampton game tomorrow.
