Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has confirmed his desire to join Boca Juniors this summer.
The Uruguay international - currently on loan at Atletico Madrid - tragically lost his mother last month after she tested positive for COVID-19, and he has been persistently linked with a return to South America.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is keen to wait until the end of the season before discussing Torreira's future, but the 25-year-old has begged the Gunners to let him leave amid interest from Boca and other clubs on the continent.
Speaking to ESPN's Federico Bulos, Torreira said: "I want to go to Boca Juniors now. I am 25 years old and I know it's a club that plays for great targets.
"I'd like to make the fans happy... but I know it's not easy. Boca should reach an agreement with Arsenal for a one-year loan."
