With all the talk that Lucas Torreira could be leaving Arsenal this summer after featuring far less under Mikel Arteta, it’s only normal for the Gunners to be looking at alternatives.
Having spent a tiny bit more than £25m on the defensive midfielder, the London club will surely want to recoup as close to, if not all of their money through a sale, which would pave the way financially for his replacement.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, those in charge at the Emirates have one name in mind, which is that of Amadou Diawara at AS Roma.
The Guinea international has impressed under Paulo Fonseca, and attracted (once again) a number of suitors in the Premier League, including the Gunners.
All the Italian website state is that the ‘transfer men’ at Arsenal have ‘tested the waters’ for Diawara, but it could certainly be a hint as to where their transfer priorities lie this summer once they’ve sorted out the arrival of Willian and the renewal of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
