Arsenal are allegedly after another central midfielder this window, but head coach Mikel Arteta was convinced that Lucas Torreira was not that type of player.
The 26-year-old started well at the Emirates club after arriving from Italian side Sampdoria back in 2018. The South American put in some great performances, adding some aggression to Arsenal’s midfield at the Emirates Stadium.
Since things have been on the slide at Arsenal. In fact, he has spent the last two seasons out on loan at Atletico Madrid and then Fiorentina last season. Torreira only has a year left on his deal and with no renewal on the horizon, it looks as if Arsenal will try to recoup some of the £25.8m that they spent on him.
Lucas Torreira has just accepted to join Galatasaray! It’s now time for the final details of the contract to be sorted out, then Torreira will fly to Istanbul in the next days ??? #Galatasaray
Arsenal will receive around €6/7m fee for Torreira, once documents will be signed. pic.twitter.com/KHvsiMQQuo
