The representative of Lucas Torreira has claimed that Arsenal had 'no intention' of parting ways with the midfielder this summer.
Soon after the end of his first campaign with the Gunners, Torreira suggested that he had struggled to settle in North London, while throwing open the possibility of returning to Serie A having previously played for Sampdoria.
AC Milan - now managed by Torreira's former boss Marco Giampaolo - emerged as a potential destination, but agent Pablo Bentancur says that the Premier League outfit were not interested in selling the Uruguay international.
Bentancur told Tuttomercatoweb: "There was the possibility. Giampaolo is in the heart of Lucas, but Arsenal said he had no intention of selling the boy. Lucas is fine, the club are happy with him. This will be the year of consecration. With the Arsenal shirt.
"Milan is Milan, it will always be an important team, even if today it has some economic problems."
Torreira has started Arsenal's first two top-flight fixtures on the substitutes' bench.body check tags ::
