Torreira opts for Atletico Madrid

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira is reportedly on the verge of a transfer to Atletico Madrid, as Torino, Fiorentina and Milan could not agree terms.

The Uruguay international had been heavily linked with a return to Serie A, where he already played for Pescara and Sampdoria.

The Italian clubs interested were Torino, Fiorentina and Milan, but would not meet the €30m asking price.

Now ESPN Uruguay claim a deal has been done with Atletico Madrid and the two clubs are down to the details of the transfer.

Atleti had pursued Brazilian midfielder Allan for that role, but the Napoli man had his heart set on a reunion with Carlo Ancelotti at Everton.
