Unsettled Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira wants a return to the Italian Serie A ahead of the winter transfer market.
This is according to the report from popular Italian transfer news portal CalcioMercato which said that the petite midfielder favors a move to Italian Serie A side and Champions League campaigners Napoli.
Lucas Torreira is fed up with life under Unai Emery at Arsenal and the player favors a move to Italy over Spain.
Recent reports claim that the Uruguayan international has been attracting the interest of clubs in both the Italian Serie A and the Spanish La Liga.
Lucas Torreira has spent just 18 months at Arsenal following his £26m move from Italian Serie A club Sampdoria.

He was touted as a transfer target for AC Milan FC of Italy during the summer when his former manager at Sampdoria, Marco Giampolo, assumed the same role at the San Siro.
Lucas Torreira opted to stay at Arsenal in the summer rather than team up with Giampaolo at AC Milan and it looked like a wise decision as the Italian tactician was sacked after just two months of the new season due to the poor start to the season.
Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira is frustrated at Arsenal mainly due to the change of his position by underfire manager Unai Emery.
Torreira is a defensive midfielder being deployed as an attacking midfielder in several games this season.
