Torreira joined Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan deal in the hopes of finding more regular playing time, but he has hardly been utilized by coach Diego Simeone this campaign.

The 24-year-old has made 13 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 420 minutes. In that time, he has scored one goal and provided one assist.

The Biancocelesti are considering Torreira as he could be a strong replacement for the ageing Lucas Leiva, who has not looked himself this season.
