Arsenal may recall Torreira from loan

Arsenal may recall Lucas Torreira from his loan spell with Atlético Madrid.

The Uruguayan international joined the Spanish side on a season-long loan in October, but with no option to buy included in the deal.

However, he has started only two La Liga games for them, and there are suspicions that Atlético are deliberately trying to drive down his price by not playing him.

The Gunners want to protect the value of a plater who remains under contract at the Emirates, and are now considering recalling him and loaning him to another club instead, with Fiorentina said to be interested.

The relationship between Arsenal and Atlético has been strained since transfer deadline day when the Gunners signed Thomas Partey by triggering his release clause directly with the Spanish Federation. They were fully within their rights to do so, but Atlético believe they should have been consulted first.
