Fiorentina have signed Lucas Torreira on a season-long loan with the option to buy him next summer. The 25-year-old spent last campaign on loan at Spanish giants, Atletico Madrid, where he played only 502 minutes throughout their title-winning campaign, before returning to the Gunners last week via the Copa America and a quarantine-avoiding training camp in Spain.
Back at London Colney, after reportedly pitching his services to Mikel Arteta, he was informed that he was surplus to requirements.
Torreira made 50 appearances for the Gunners in a promising first season, but things haven't gone as planned since.
Signed as a holding midfielder, he lost Unai Emery's trust in the Spaniard's second campaign, and his form has been on the decline ever since due to a pair of untimely injuries and a loss of confidence. He is out of contract in 2023, and it appears that he has played his final game for the club.
Torreira spent 4 years in Italy, from 2014 to 2018, and will be trying to rediscover the form that saw him go from Pescara to Sampdoria and then to the Emirates.
