Journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that one of the Gunners’ midfielders is now desperate to leave the club as the summer transfer window edges closer to an end.

With Mikel Arteta already securing the acquisitions of Gabriel Magalhaes and Willian so far this summer, the Arsenal boss might look to offload one or two players before any more new additions are to be considered.

One of the players who have featured sparingly under the current Arsenal manager is Lucas Torreira, as he continues to be linked with a move away from the Emirates stadium.

According to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano, Atletico Madrid are actually in talks with Arsenal over a move to sign the South American star on loan.

Romano also added that Torreira is indeed ‘desperate’ to leave the Gunners’ after a forgettable year at the club which has seen him fail to maintain a consistent spot in the first team.
