Atletico turned their attention to signing Torreira after they secured a deal for Luis Suarez.

It is understood the LaLiga side want to sign the 24-year-old on a season-long loan.

But the Gunners would rather offload him permanently.

Torreira joined the Gunners in a £25.7million deal from Sampdoria in 2018.

He made 29 appearances in the Premier League last season, scoring one goal and making one assist.

Houssem Aouar has emerged as Arsenal’s top transfer target

Kolasinac, 27, has fallen behind Kieran Tierney and Ainsley Maitland-Niles in the pecking order at Arsenal.

Reports have claimed the club are willing to sell the Bosnia international for around £9million.

But his £8.1m wages could prove a problem for Leverkusen.

L’Equipe claimed the Gunners are not convincing Lyon a deal can be reached after returning with a ‘timid’ £34.5m offer.

The Ligue 1 side’s president Jean-Michel Aulas has previously revealed the two clubs remain far apart in their valuations of Aouar.

Lyon had valued Aouar at around £54million – but will consider a lower offer due to the coronavirus pandemic.
