AC Milan preparing audacious two-year loan bid to sign Lucas Torreira from Arsenal

first_img Comment Torreira’s former manager at Sampdoria Marco Giampaolo is the new AC Milan boss (Picture: Getty)Torreira reaffirmed his commitment to Arsenal earlier this week, saying: ‘Nobody from AC Milan has got in touch with me, today I’m in the Premier [League] and happy to be part of the Arsenal.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘It cost me the adaptation, it’s not easy, but I only think about that team. I’m happy to be there.’Nevertheless, Milan appear to be growing increasingly confident that they can lure him back to Serie A as they bid to assemble a squad capable of finishing in the top-four next season.Giampaolo has also been linked with moves for Sampdoria duo Dennis Praet and Joachim Andersen, both of whom are reportedly on Unai Emery’s transfer wishlist.It seems unlikely that Arsenal would be willing to allow Torreira to leave on loan considering they spent £23m to sign him from Sampdoria a year ago while he impressed overall during his debut season.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityEmery is also operating under a strict transfer budget of around £45m this summer and he would have to find a replacement for Torreira if he were allowed to depart.Although Torreira’s form dipped towards the end of last season, he still made 34 Premier League appearances for the Gunners, scoring two goals and registering two assists.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?
