EPL: Arsenal in another swap deal talks


The North London outfit, Arsenal are reported to be in talks with AS Roma over a swap deal involving their want-away midfielder, Lucas Torreira in the summer transfer window.

Lucas Torreira is one of those expected to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer window as his place in the Mikel Arteta team cannot be guaranteed. The former Sampdoria player has already gotten the message and is ready to give his nod to a move.

However, the North London club is willing to let him leave for the Italian Serie A club so that they can have Amadou Diawara in return.

AS Roma have been able to secure the signature of Chelsea winger, Pedro, and will now listen to offers from Arsenal, according to La Gazzette dello Sport.

Arsenal are reported to have a good relationship with AS Roma and that could play a big role in ensuring a deal for Amadou Diawara this summer window.

The North London outfit are yet to seal any summer deal but they have been showing a high level of ambition with their reported plans and names being mentioned to be on their interest list.

Meanwhile, a number of players are expected to leave the club to make way for other new recruits before the end of the summer transfer window.
