Lucas Torreira has poured cold water on a possible move to AC Milan this summer, insisting he is happy at Arsenal

The Uruguayan joined last July from Sampdoria, where he played under Marco Giampaolo, who has been appointed AC Milan boss.

‘Nobody from AC Milan has got in touch with me,’ he said.

‘Today I’m in the Premier [League] and happy to be part of Arsenal. Adapting was not easy, but I only think about the team. I’m happy to be there.’

Last season Torreira made 50 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring twice and providing four assists.

He has established himself as a key member of Unai Emery’s midfield and allows the more attacking players to flourish.

Torreira joined the Gunners for £26m in 2018 and it would take a significant offer to prise him away after just one year. 

He is currently away with the Uruguayan national side and preparing to play Peru in the Copa America quarter-final.
