Arsenal have set the asking price for wantaway midfielder Lucas Torreira with clubs in the Italian Serie A interested in signing him.

The asking price for the Uruguayan international was revealed via a report from the Daily Star.

It was stated that the Gunners will accept £22m or more for the 24-year-old.

Italian clubs Torino and Fiorentina are the Italian teams interested in signing Lucas Torreira who joined the Gunners in 2018.

The aforementioned report said that Torino are the overwhelming favourites to sign the Arsenal player and that the Turin-based club wants to meet the Gunners’ asking price. The only problem for Torino could be the structure of payment.

Torino are expected to get some cash from Armando Izzo who’s on the verge of moving from the club to AS Roma and the money could be very useful in their pursuit of Torreira.

New Torino boss Marco Giampolo was the Sampdoria manager when Lucas Torreira excelled at the club before moving to the Premier League and the Italian tactician wants to reignite that player-manager relationship.

Lucas Torreira left Sampdoria for Arsenal in the summer of 2018 in a £26m deal.

Fiorentina have slowed down their interest in him with the return of Spanish midfielder Borja Valero from Inter Milan.
