AC Milan are interested in signing Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira, according to Di Marzio, and supporters have been reacting on Twitter.
The Serie A club defeated Shamrock Rovers 2-0 last night in the Europa League and will now try and bolster their ranks.
Arsenal want £22 million for the midfielder who signed for the club for £26 million in 2018 from Sampdoria (Metro).
The 24-year-old has struggled to make an impact in England with injuries and consistency halting his chances of success.
In 89 games for the Gunners, he’s scored four goals and registering six assists during his time at the club.
Arsenal hope to raise some funds in order to complete their own squad ahead of the deadline.
Boss Mikel Arteta has added Willian, Gabriel and the loan signing of Dani Ceballos to his ranks so far this summer.
Midfielder Thomas Partey is still a wanted man though and funds are sought in order to sign the Atletico Madrid performer.
It is thought that AC Milan will want to get the price lower than Arsenal’s current valuation and their desire to raise funds could help.
Torreira is paid £75,000-a-week at the Emirates Stadium and even getting his wages off the books would help in their quest to land Partey.
Following the latest news, Arsenal fans have been reacting on Twitter, with many just keen to see the back of the Uruguyan now.
Highest bidder wins 🙏

Can he just get sold. Like the player. Not a fit for this system.

Sounds like the agent is pushing Torino to finish the deal and maybe offer a better package for Torreira and the agent.
But I would like a chain effect of Torreia > Paqueta > Arouar started
