Leaked images show Lucas Torreira signing Fiorentina contract ahead of Arsenal departure
Lucas Torreira’s Arsenal stint
Lucas Torreira joined Arsenal as part of their big-spending summer of 2018, and despite starting strongly, failed to kick on in his Arsenal careeer. A defensive midfielder, his tough tackling and desire to win the ball earned him plenty of plaudits among the Arsenal faithful, but he was later deployed as a no.10 toward the end of Unai Emery’s crumbling regime.

Despite starting initially under Mikel Arteta, he was quickly deposed from the side, and come the end of the season, was clearly out of the manager’s plans. A loan move to Atletico Madrid was forthcoming last campaign, and it was clear that the Uruguayan had no future at the Emirates stadium, making a move away this summer likely.
Leaked photos show him signing Fiorentina contract
As reported by Football.London, Lucas Torreira flew to Italy yesterday ahead of a loan move to Serie A outfit Fiorentina, which will net the Gunners 1.5 million euros. Those worried about the deal falling through at the eleventh hour, however, can now rest easy.

Torreira is likely to be followed out of the exit door by Willian and Sead Kolasinac, the pair in negotiations with Corinthians and Fenerbhce respectively.

Could these departures provide much-needed funds for further incomings before deadline day?
