According to Tuttomercatoweb, the player’s agent is going to start negotiations with “the Gunners” so that his client can leave the club without any problems and return to Serie A.
As you may know, the Uruguayan midfielder has been linked with a move to AC Milan and Napoli in the past. But then the transfer did not happen to any of the teams. Although, it is not ruled out that Lucas will be seen in the shirt of any Italian club in the near future.
Lucas Torreira moved to Arsenal from London in 2018 from Sampdoria. His transfer to the English club cost 28 million. The current contract with Arsenal expires on June 30, 2023.
The 24-year-old wants to return to Serie A, but it is unknown which team is his favorite at this stage. Recall that before Sampdoria, the player defended the honor of another Italian club – Pescara.
According to Transfermarkt, the transfer value of the player is currently set at 36 million. His price was the highest – 55 million in December 2018.
Cagliari also ready to pay 38 m for Lucas Torreira
“Lucas was in a bad mood due to injury. But then he recovered, and now he is feeling well. I believe he will be in demand during the transfer window.
I will have to talk to Arsenal’s bosses because Lucas Torreira wants to return to Italy. But noteworthy that the club have always treated him well, and we appreciate that, ”said Pablo Bentancur.
According to the same source, one of the candidates for the addition of the player is also Cagliari. The club negotiated with the player’s agent before declaring a pandemic. They agreed to pay 38 million in exchange for the player. But due to the financial crisis caused by COVID-19, the situation may change.
