Arsenal funds boost imminent as Lucas Torreira finally agrees to exit

The one-time big-money arrival is set to take his talents to Turkey


Premier League giants Arsenal are in line for an imminent funds boost, according to reports.

The latest player set to call time on his stint on the red half of north London? Lucas Torreira.

The summer to date, of course, has seen Torreira widely tipped to finally bring a permanent close to the Gunners chapter of his career.

This comes with the Uruguayan international fresh off the back of a stellar loan spell in Italy, on the books of Serie A outfit Fiorentina.

With the Viola having surprised the masses in opting against activating their option to buy, though, rival suitors from across the continent have been allowed back into the fray.

And now, as alluded to above, one such club appear to be on the verge of beating out the competition for Torreira.

As per transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the 26-year-old ‘has accepted’ a permanent Arsenal exit.

Torreira, it is understood, is primed to take his talents to Turkey with Galatasaray, with only the final details of the midfielder’s contract in Istanbul still to be ironed out.

Arsenal, for their part, are expected to receive a cut-price fee for their out-of-favour star, in the region of €6/7 million.
