Arsenal star Lucas Torreira has hinted he is unhappy with life in England amid rumours he could move for AC Milan.

And the 23-year-old admits he is finding it tough to adapt in England as he claimed he had ‘better life’ in Italy.

“I don’t know if there are many things that I enjoy (in England),” he said.

“I think it was better in Italy. England is a totally different world, a very large country.

“The language [barrier] has stopped me, to be able to relate with my team-mates and with the people. It is very difficult when you can’t have a dialogue.”

AC Milan are said to be keen to sign Torreira as they look to strengthen a team that failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Gennaro Gattuso bowed out as manager as a result and Torreira’s former Sampdoria boss, Marco Giampaolo is the frontrunner to succeed him.

It is alleged he could be keen on a reunion and the player’s latest comments suggest he would be glad to consider it.

This is not the first time a rash exit from the Emirates has been suggested.
