Agent: 'Arsenal must decide on Torreira'

Lucas Torreira’s agent confirms Arsenal must ‘work out if they need’ the midfielder, but there are ‘no written offers’ yet, despite Torino and Fiorentina interest.

The Uruguay international has been heavily linked with moves to Fiorentina or Torino, having experience of Serie A with Pescara and Sampdoria.

“There are many requests for information, but nothing official yet, so there are no written offers on the table,” agent Pablo Bentancur told

“The player is training with Arsenal, they own him, he is one of the few cases of athletes who arrive in England and immediately play 50 games in a row.

“After a nasty injury, he didn’t require surgery, but the recovery process was still tricky and took a while. Now the coach and Arsenal must work out if they need Torreira or not.”

If the midfielder did leave Arsenal, where would be prefer to go?

“Football has to be divided into two parts, the sporting and the economic areas. In sporting terms, Torreira is perfect for Torino and he’d reunite with Marco Giampaolo after their time at Sampdoria.

“At the same time, we must be realistic and admit Arsenal will have some very big demands, while Lucas’ salary is also a bit too high for Torino.”
