Arsenal midfielder becomes a priority for Serie A outfit

Timothy Aiyeku



Lucas Torreira

Serie A outfit Fiorentina have made Arsenal player Lucas Torreira their primary target for this summer transfer window as they seek to fortify their midfield ahead of the coming season.

Lucas Torreira joined the Gunners from Sampdoria with a big prospect but the just-concluded season saw him inconsistent in the team as he had a number of bench roles which has made him unhappy.

Now, the club has not hidden their wish to part ways with him so as to hand him the opportunity of a better playing time elsewhere as well as his ability to help them cash in.

Sky Italia claims that Lucas Torreira’s qualities and abilities have not been forgotten in the Serie A after his first spell with Sampdoria and Fiorentina are keen to have him again.

This means Lucas Torreira will bring an end to his 39 appearances for the North London club for a new start elsewhere. It is understood that he is willing to move on but the fee the Gunners are willing to take is still unknown.

Howbeit, the North London club are expected t sign a new midfielder with Matteo Guendouzi also on his way out with offers being expected before the end of the summer window.
