The final exit of Lucas Torreira from the Emirates is imminent.
The Uruguayan midfielder has been on loan with Fiorentina in Serie A this season, and a deal to make the move permanent is set to be confirmed in the coming days.
A fee of £12.6 million has already been agreed in case the Italian side decide to exercise their option to buy, which now seems certain.
In truth the 26-year old a signing made when Unai Emery was at the club, has seemed for a long time to have no future at the North London club, and spent last season on another loan move, this time with Atlético Madrid.
Nor is he likely to be the only summer departure from Arsenal this summer, as Mikel Arteta seeks to remodel his squad, even knowing that European football next season is now assured.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
