Lazio handed boost in chase of Arsenal’s Lucas Torreira

Lazio have been handed a boost in their chase of Lucas Torreira as Arsenal could be willing to do a deal on favourable terms with them.

This comes from La Gazzetta dello Sport, who claim that there is mutual admiration when it comes to Lazio and Torreira even though talks haven’t been held yet. The Uruguayan is a popular choice as a midfield signing for Lazio, who could sell Gonzalo Escalante to make room for the ex-Sampdoria man.

The 28-year-old’s sale could hand Lazio some cash and that can prove crucial, as Arsenal are willing to let the player leave on an initial loan deal with Lazio having the option to sign him permanently. This could help the Biancocelesti in the chase.

Igli Tare has an ‘old obssession’ for the player since his time at Sampdoria and he might be keen to make this deal happen.
