Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has revealed that his dream is to play for one of the biggest football clubs outside of Europe.
The 23-year-old was part of Unai Emery’s first group of signings after the Spanish tactician replaced Arsene Wenger as the manager of the Gunners at the end of last season.
After a decent season at the Emirates stadium, Lucas Torreira will be expected to be kept at the club for a few more years as a vital member of Arsenal’s midfield.
However, the Uruguay international has admitted that he does have dreams of playing for one of the game’s biggest clubs – who are not even based in Europe.
According to the former Serie A star, Argentina giants Boca Juniors are a club whom he dreams to play for at some point in his career as a footballer.
“One day, I want to play for Boca and wear their shirt,” the combative South American midfielder said, via Metro
“It’s a dream I have had since I was a little kid. It’s no secret, my family and friends know that.
“I was with several friends [at the Copa Libertadores final. I did not think I was going to suffer so much, I lived it with a lot of nerves. ‘It was not as we wanted, but reaching the final is not for anyone. It was a nice show because I had never had the chance to see Boca.”
