Lucas Torreira

Italian Serie A giants AC Milan have made an enquiry about the availability of Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira according to transfer news guru Gianluca Di Marzio.

The seven-time European champions have held an interest in Lucas Torreira and they have decided to firm up their interest with an official bid.

Gianluca Di Marzio confirmed the interest of AC Milan in the Uruguayan international via his official Twitter account.

Torreira, 24, is available for a transfer this summer as he has not been able to convince Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta that he deserves a regular place in his starting XI.

Arteta and Arsenal are trying to raise funds for new midfield signings and the sale of Lucas Torreira could be crucial to this.

Another transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano revealed that the Gunners have only received loan bids for Lucas Torreira.

Apart from AC Milan, Fiorentina and Torino are also keen to sign Lucas Torreira.

Fiorentina and Torino have been able to offer loan deals for the player with the obligation of making the signing permanent at the end of the loan. On their part, Arsenal are holding out for a permanent deal of £22m which is some millions short of the £26m paid for his transfer in 2018.
