Atlético Madrid paid €1m to Arsenal to take Lucas Torreira on a loan deal in the summer.

The La Liga side will also take care of the midfielder’s full wages during his season-long stay at Wanda Metropolitano.

Torreira has seen his playing time limited as he has started only two matches for Los Rojiblancos.

Earlier this week, AS reported Valencia, Lazio, Fiorentina and AS Monaco have shown the ‘most interest’ in taking the Gunners owned player in the winter market.

Friday’s edition of Marca explains the Uruguay international’s entourage ‘moves the tree thinking of an exit’.

The Arsenal man’s camp wants him to join another club so that he can have more minutes in the second half of the season. 

As of January 29th, the report states the clubs who have reportedly shown interest have not ‘sent an offer’ to Diego Simeone’s side to take the 24-year-old away from Atlético.

In addition to this, the Madrid based club ‘does not consider’ Torreira’s exit before the window closes on Monday because their intention is to retain him until the end of the season.
