Speaking to the South American media this week, Lucas Torreira’s father not only confirmed the player’s wish to move to Argentina, but also claimed they’ve been getting offers from Brazil as well.
So now it’s time for the Brazilian media to join the coverage of the Arsenal player’s situation, as UOL brings a report on it today.
The outlet claims it’s Flamengo who have been interested in his signing and are currently ‘monitoring’ and ‘carefully following’ the 25-year-old’s situation.
On loan to Atletico Madrid, Torreira will see his spell with the Spanish side end at the end of the season when he will then sort out his future at Arsenal.
UOL write that following Torreira’s statements saying he wants to return to South America, Flamengo made an approach, but there are no negotiations at the moment, with the player’s priority still being to sign for Boca Juniors.
Torreira’s wish to be close to his family has to do with the death of his mother at the end of last month.
UOL say Arsenal started to give the player psychological support, as they’re worried about him, and are in no hurry when it comes to working on his transfer right now, with his contract with the Gunners runs until 2023.
