After a week of intense speculation about his future, we’ve finally heard from Lucas Torreira who says he has no idea about any interest from AC Milan, and insists he’s happy at Arsenal.
There were reports that he was unsettled in the UK – but it appears that some quotes he made at the end of the season focused almost exclusively on the difficulties he faced rather than the bits he actually enjoyed. You can read the full context of his quotes here.
The Uruguayan international is away at the Copa America, and speaking to the press today he denied any knowledge of a move to AC Milan where he’d be exposed to greater exposure to Ivan Gazidis which nobody needs.
“I don’t know anything about interest from Milan,” he said. “Nobody has called me. I am in the Premier League today and am happy to be part of Arsenal.
“It’s true, it hasn’t been easy adapting, but I am only thinking of the team now.
“I’m happy to be in London.”
It’s good to hear, because he’s a player we need to keep, so hopefully this helps things die down. The way this summer is going however, you can’t help but think this isn’t the last we’ve heard about this particular story.
