Galatasaray And Arsenal In Final Stage Of Talks For Lucas Torreira

According to reports, Lucas Torreira and Galatasaray have reached personal terms for him to join the club.


Both clubs have already bargained a deal for a £5.5m fee. Torreira and Galatasaray have reached personal terms in a meeting on Friday in Italy.


In the coming days, Lucas Torreira will have his medicals before being announced as a Galatasaray player.


The former Gunner's boss Unai Emery brought Lucas Torreira to Arsenal in 2019. Though, he hasn't been part of Mike Arteta's plan.

He has spent the last two seasons of his Arsenal career on loan at Atletico Madrid and Florentina. He was still not wanted by Arteta when he came back for pre-season training.


During the summer, Arsenal has been one of the transfer market's biggest spenders. The club wants to secure Torreira's exit, which will lower the club's current wage bill.


During his stay at Arsenal, he has had 89 caps across all competitions. He also helped the club lift the FA Cup in Arteta's first season at the Emirates.


He will join Galatasaray, who performed below par last season. They finished 13th in the Turkish Super Lig and 29 points behind champions Trabzonspor, as they missed out on Champions League football.


Torreira will be Galatasaray's eighth signing this summer. The club hopes to improve after a terrible campaign last season.
