Lucas Torreira was hoping to get regular playing time after joining Atlético Madrid on a loan deal from Arsenal on the summer deadline day.
However, that hasn’t happened so far as the midfielder has 11 appearances in all competitions, which includes only two starts and 40 minutes of action in the last seven league matches.
Multiple reports have talked about Valencia and other Serie A sides’ interest in the Gunners player and Inter Milan became the latest club to be linked with the Uruguayan.
Two days ago, Arsenal director Edu Gaspar confirmed his side are concerned about the former Sampdoria man’s situation in Madrid, while also revealing several clubs have approached him asking about the South American’s situation.
Last month, Torreira’s agent Pablo Bentancur stressed his client wants to continue with Diego Simeone’s side, and addressing the latest rumours linking the South American to Inter, Bentancur has once again dismissed the possibility of the Arsenal man leaving Atlético in the winter market.
“No contact with Inter for Torreira. I have not received any calls. Torreira is at Atlético, he is very well in Madrid and will not move in January,” Bentancur told FcInter1908.
