Arsenal Vagabond Torreira Offered to Lazio

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has been offered to Lazio following his painful departure from Fiorentina.

The 26-year-old Uruguayan joined the Viola on loan last summer and had a good season under Vincenzo Italiano, scoring five goals and providing two assists in 31 Serie A appearances. Torreira was keen to stay with Fiorentina but ultimately returned to Arsenal after the Viola looked for a discount on the agreed buy option fee.

As reported by Alfredo Pedulla, Torreira has been offered to Lazio for the second time in 12 months, looking to find a new home in Italy. Last summer he was also offered to Maurizio Sarri, who is a big fan of the player, but back then there was no margin for talks.

Things have changed this summer and Lazio are not interested in signing Torreira now. Instead, the club would prefer a more physically imposing midfielder like Hellas Verona talent Ivan Ilic.
