Momentum builds for Torreira-Diawara swap

Reports continue to suggest Roma are close to agreeing a straight swap between Amadou Diawara and Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira.

The rumour has been circulating for a few days now, but Il Romanista claim both clubs have a basic agreement, while the new development is that Torreira also gave the all-clear.

Fiorentina and Torino are also interested in Torreira, but the Uruguay international is leaning towards Roma.

It would be a return to Serie A for Torreira, who came up through the Pescara youth academy, going on to play for Sampdoria before his €29m move to Arsenal in 2018.

As for Diawara, Roma spent €21m to sign the Guinean from Napoli in 2019.
