Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira reveals Boca Juniors "dream"

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira reveals that he hopes to represent Boca Juniors before the end of his playing career.

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has revealed that he 'dreams" of being able to represent Boca Juniors in the future.

At a time when Torreira is close to completing his second campaign at the Emirates Stadium, there continues to be speculation regarding the Uruguay international's future.

While it has been suggested that the 24-year-old could return to Serie A, the player has said that he wants to ply his trade in Argentina's top flight later in his career.

Speaking to Fox Sports Argentina, Torreira said: "I imagine a Copa Libertadores night at the Bombonera wearing Boca's shirt, of course.

"Right now my head is in Europe and I was to stay for a while, but I have that desire and dream to go to Boca, and not just to retire, but to compete and feel what the Boca world is.

"My family is big soccer fans and we Uruguayans watch a lot of Argentine football. It is one of the most important in South America, very passionate, so from a very young age this affection, this love for Boca was born."

Torreira still has over three years remaining on his Gunners contract.
