Fiorentina make transfer signing of Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira ‘top priority’ with Roma also keen

FIORENTINA have made signing Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira their “top priority” this summer, according to reports.

The 24-year-old appears surplus to requirements at The Emirates with Mikel Arteta happy to sell.

Sampdoria have made signing Lucas Torreira from Arsenal ‘top priority’

The Gunners boss hopes to raise extra transfer funds by offloading several members of his squad.

Now he could see that kitty boosted by the sale of the Uruguayan international.

His stock remains high in Serie A following his impressive three-year stint at Sampdoria prior to his 2018 move to London.

He appeared 71 times for the club and scored four goals before the Gunners swooped.

And La Viola are hoping for a positive response as they try to snap up the ace from Arsenal.

However, it remains unclear what sort of deal they are looking to do for the South American.

Roma, who were willing to throw in ace Amadou Diawara as part of a potential package, have also been linked with Torreira as well as AC Milan.

The tough-tackling battler enjoyed 39 outings for the Premier League outfit last season, collecting seven yellow cards.

But now he could be joining fellow midfielder Matteo Guendouzi out of the exit door this summer.

Arsenal forked out around £26m for him two years ago, and with him tied down to a contract until 2023, they will be looking to recoup as much of that back as possible.
