Agent: 'Torreira wants Italy return'

Lucas Torreira’s agent has confirmed that the Arsenal midfielder ‘would love’ to return to Italy after two years away.

Torreira played for Pescara and Sampdoria before his move to Arsenal in the summer of 2018, and the Uruguayan has made no secret of his preference for life on the peninsula.

“Lucas had some differences with his coach and was a bit annoyed about it, but then he bounced back,” Pablo Bentancur told Tuttomercatoweb.

“The injury came after that, but luckily it’s not as serious as we feared it would be. Now he’s completely recovered and I think he’ll be a wanted man in the transfer market.

“I still have to talk to Arsenal. The player would love to return to Italy, although it must be acknowledged that Arsenal have treated him very well.”

Milan and Napoli have both been linked with bringing the 24-year-old back to Serie A in recent months.
