Lucas Torreira

Arsenal are now having their transfer plans moving the right direction with reports that they are set to cash in £24 million from the sale of Lucas Torreira this summer transfer window.

It is in the plans of the North London club to do away with some players so as to raise funds for other transfer deals and Lucas Torreira is obviously one of them after going down the pecking order in the manager Mikel Arteta team.

Italian Serie A outfit Fiorentina are obvious suitors of the former Sampdoria midfielder and they are reported to have agreed on a £24 million deal with the North London outfit with an announcement expected in the coming days.

The details of the deal reveal that Lucas Torreira will go on a season-long loan for a fee of £8 million and a compulsory permanent move of £16 million in the next summer window.

Lucas Torreira had 29 appearances for the Gunners in the Premier League last season, scoring a goal and creating one goal opportunity as his own contribution to the team.

His exit will make room for Dani Ceballos who is set to return from Real Madrid on another season-long loan after impressing in the first loan spell under manager Mikel Arteta.
