Atletico Madrid reportedly have no interest in accepting Arsenal's bid to include Lucas Torreira in any part-exchange proposal for Thomas Partey.

Atletico Madrid reportedly have no interest in signing Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira on a permanent deal this summer.

Having failed to settle to life in North London, Torreira could depart the Emirates Stadium before the end of the current transfer window.

While a return to Serie A remains a possibility, Atletico continue to be linked with the Uruguay international at a time when they are bidding to sign his compatriot Luis Suarez.

However, the Daily Star claims that the La Liga outfit are only prepared to bring in the 24-year-old on a season-long loan deal.

The report says that club officials are not prepared for Torreira to feature in any part-exchange deal for Thomas Partey, who has a £45m release clause.

Arsenal had wanted to explore that avenue in a bid to reduce their financial outlay on the Ghanaian midfielder.
