Arsenal have reportedly joined the race to sign Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira, who has a €25m release clause.
Gianluca Di Marzio’s website claims Arsenal have opened talks with Samp for Torreira, but money is currently an issue.
This would be because the Uruguayan’s agent is ‘demanding too much’, without the transfer expert clarifying what, while the Blucerchiati prefer €30m in instalments than €25m up front.
Di Marzio adds Napoli ‘remain very interested’ in the 22-year-old, whose agent is not expected to make a decision on his client’s future until June 15.
