- Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) Torreira transfer: Agreement between Atletico and Arsenal is still pending
Allerings, an agreement with Arsenal is still a long way off. Torreira came to North London from Sampdoria Genoa in the summer of 2018. The 23-time national player cost almost 29 million euros at the time. After a good start in the Premier League, Torreira is only a reservist, his contract is still valid until 2023.
