According to Uruguayan journalist Sebas Giovanelli, Atletico Madrid’s manager Diego Simeone is very keen on Lucas Torreira and has apparently made a call to the midfielder to offer him a way out of Arsenal.
Torreira could be on his way to Spain to join Atleti, in a move that would see Thomas Partey come over to North London, The Sun report.
It would help Atlectico offload him and help Mikel Arteta’s side in possibly paying less than the £45m release clause that is holding Partey at Atletico still.
Maybe now will be the time that the Gunners will get the man they have been after for so long.
Will it be worth it, only time will tell.
But he is a very experienced player even if he does come with a bit of a high price tag.
Losing Torreira will be a shame because he does have the potential to become a star.
