Some players just make it really easy for the fans to warm to and Lucas Torreira is one of those. The 22-year-old midfielder has been talking about his transfer to Arsenal and he’s claimed that he knew he was going to be signing for Arsenal before the World Cup had started.
“When I went to the World Cup, I knew that whatever happened I was going to sign for Arsenal”

Torreira has shown that he’s got the maturity to boss the midfield in the Premier League, even though he’s just 22-years-old. He showed his ability in the World Cup and now he’s had a few cameo appearances for The Gunners he’s been able to show that in England too, especially on Sunday when he came off the bench and set up Alexandre Lacazette’s winning goal in Cardiff.
The fans have been hounding the Arsenal Twitter admin with demands for the Uruguayan midfielder to start a game at some point but it looks like Unai Emery has the situation under control. When Torreira is ready to start and is fully match fit and understands the system at The Emirates then he will be played, that could be against Newcastle or it could be later, but for now, the fans are all aware of how much they admire the youngster’s incredible talents.
