Arsenal are reportedly willing to let Lucas Torreira leave the club on loan or permanently, with Fiorentina and Torino both keen to secure the midfielder's signature.

Arsenal are reportedly willing to allow Lucas Torreira to leave the club, with Fiorentina and Torino both looking to strike a loan deal for the South American.

Torreira struggled to impress at the Emirates last season, with the midfield pairing of Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos being preferred by Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.

Furthermore, the Gunners have also welcomed Mohamed Elneny back into the fold, while highly-rated duo Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar are both being linked with moves to the Emirates Stadium.

As a result, The Guardian claims that Torino and Fiorentina are set to battle it out for Torreira's signature, and the Gunners are open to a loan or permanent exit for the 24-year-old.

The report also suggests that a fee of £18m could be enough to prise the former Sampdoria man away from North London, and Torreira himself is keen on a return to the Italian top flight.

The Uruguay international is under contract at Arsenal until 2023, where he has totalled 89 appearances and four goals across all competitions since being signed by Unai Emery.
