Arsenal fans were blasting reports that Napoli are looking to sign midfielder Lucas Torreira.
According to Il Mattino, the Italian club will test the north London side’s resolve with a bid in the region of €25m (roughly £21.1m) or by offering a loan deal in January.
The Serie A side were in the hunt for the midfielder when he was playing for rivals Sampdoria; however, the Gunners beat them to his signature.
Torreira was linked with an exit from the club in last summer’s transfer window with famed journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claiming the Uruguayan was targeting a move back to Italy.
The Uruguay international has had a real lack of action this season, starting just seven Premier League games (via WhoScored).
His agent claimed the player was ‘unhappy’ due to a change of role this season (Radio Marteof via Calciomercato).
Fans were far from happy as they responded to the reports from the Italian publication as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful, with one fan claiming that even Granit Xhaka would go for more than the current fee being touted:
