Re: Time to cash in Torreira

AC Milan are preparing a bid to sign Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira on loan, with a view to a permanent transfer.

The Serie A club will make an offer in the region of £4.5m for a two-season loan, with an additional fee of around £25m to make the Uruguayan's move permanent at the end of that period.

Sky in Italy understand that Torreira would like to return to Italy to work with his former manager Marco Giampaolo, who took over at AC Milan this month.

The 23-year-old joined Arsenal from Sampdoria for £26m last summer, and played in all but four of the London club's Premier League fixtures last season, three of which he was banned for.

With Arsenal having already lost Aaron Ramsey to Juventus, head coach Unai Emery is understood to be keen to avoid losing another of his central midfielders.

Torreira initially broke into senior football at Pescara, having moved to Italy as a teenager, before joining Sampdoria for little more than £1m in 2016.

What a complete joke of an offer. £4.5m for 2 season on loan then buy him for £25m which is lower than what we paid for him. Gazidis up to his tricks again with derisory offers. We need to tell them to where to go. The deal won't even help our transfer kitty in the short term and weaken an already bad team.

This is ridiculous, if he actually wants to go. Then they need to stump up serious money for him. If you don't have the cash, then don't waste the clubs time.
