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.
