Arsenal are looking to sell some players, and it looks like they are doing this so that they can add more additions to their squad like Thomas Partey or Houssem Aouar.
One player heavily linked with a move away is Lucas Torreira, and it looks like his departure could happen sooner rather than later.
According to Calciomercato Arsenal and Serie A club Torino have recently reached an agreement over a fee for which the midfielder can leave the club.
The reported fee is around €24 million (£22.1m) and all that is left for the two sides to sort out is the minor details.
The Uruguayan played 39 times for Arsenal last season across all competitions, with two goals and one assist to his name. Torreira has been good at breaking up play in the Premier League as he has averaged 1.1 successful tackles and 1.2 interceptions per game, via WhoScored.
Whilst he made plenty of appearances, the last time he managed a full 90 minutes in the Premier League was back in January, per Transfermarkt, and this suggests that he is perceived more as a squad player than as a first team mainstay under Mikel Arteta.
He adds squad depth and featured regularly last season, but if the north London side can get a large transfer fee for the £27m-valued midfielder, then it would definitely benefit the club, especially when Mikel Arteta has stressed about the current financial struggles the club has.
