Torreira ideal for Arsenal

Lucas Torreira is the ideal player to improve Arsenal and represents another smart Sampdoria sale, writes Adam Summerton.

If you ask most people in North London what ‘Fray Bentos’ means to them, I’d imagine the most common reply you’d get would be ‘pies’, and with good reason, it’s an iconic British brand.

But it’s a little known fact that the food manufacturer is named after a Uruguayan port city where the products were originally processed and packaged until the 1960s. It is also the birth place of a certain Lucas Torreira, who could also be a household name in England soon.

Higuain tough act to follow

Juventus must be careful when considering a change, as there are very few strikers who can replace Gonzalo Higuain, warns Vilizar Yakimov.

Gonzalo Higuain has always been a contradictory figure. The Argentinian’s bizarre ability to produce world class displays in one game and unbelievable misses in the next has been dividing opinions ever since he moved to Europe in 2007.

The €90m that Juventus paid to lure him away from Napoli two years ago only increased the controversy and media interest surrounding Higuain. If you walk around Turin and ask the locals if Higuain has lived up to that price tag, one thing is certain - you’ll get plenty of contrasting answers.

Perotti over Icardi for Argentina?

Diego Perotti and Erik Lamela are reportedly the favourites to replace Manuel Lanzini in Argentina’s World Cup squad.

Lanzini’s ACL injury possibly opened the door for Inter striker Mauro Icardi, given his status as the biggest name to have been omitted from Jorge Sampaoli’s 23-man list.

However, Clarin believes Roma attacker Perotti and his Giallorossi predecessor Erik Lamela – now of Totenham Hotspur – are the leading candidates to fill in for the West Ham United midfielder.

Icardi in after Lanzini injury?

Inter striker Mauro Icardi could be given an Argentina reprieve after Manuel Lanzini pulled out of their World Cup squad with damaged knee ligaments.

Argentina tweeted on Friday morning that Lanzini ruptured the ACL in his right knee, ruling him out of the Russian showpiece.

The onus is now on who will replace the West Ham United midfielder, and Icardi was one of the players in the Albiceleste’s provisional list, as well as being one of the biggest names overlooked by Jorge Sampaoli.
