Having lost Tiemoué Bakayoko as the defensive midfielder returns to Chelsea from his successful one-year loan, Milan will be in need of someone to replace him, and they’re looking in the Premier League once more.

TuttoMercatoWeb bring us the news on Tuesday morning the Serie A side have made Arsenal’s Lucas Torreira their latest ‘idea’, who only arrived from Sampdoria last summer.

Used sporadically for the first few weeks of the season, the Uruguayan didn’t take long to establish himself as an important part of Unai Emery’s squad in 2018-19, featuring in 50 games in all competitions, scoring two goals and providing five assists.

This suggests there is little chance of the Gunners wanting to sell the 23-year-old in the next few months, who have him tied down in north London until 2023.

On top of this, TuttoMercatoWeb explain the defensive midfielder isn’t considering a return to Italy just yet.

The website say this could turn into something more in the next few weeks, perhaps after Milan sort their lives out behind the scenes following Gennaro Gattuso’s and Leonardo’s exits.

We highly doubt that it will.
