Torreira to be signed outright by Fiorentina

Fiorentina are close to finalising a permanent transfer for on-loan Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira who joined them in the summer. The Uruguayan has spent the 2021/22 season on loan with La Viola with the Serie A side retaining an option to sign him outright at the end of the season.

The 25-year-old struggled to find a place in Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal team and spent the previous campaign on loan with Atletico Madrid.

FirenzeViola now report that a permanent move to Italy is on the cards with Fiorentina and Arsenal having been in talks since November.

By all accounts, the talks are expected to be little more than a formality as relations between the two sides are very good.

Torreira made 89 appearances for the Gunners across all competitions, scoring 4 goals in the process.
