Barcelona ace Suarez hails Arsenal target Torreira: He's surprised me

Barcelona ace Luis Suarez admits he's a big fan of Uruguay teammate Lucas Torreira.

Sampdoria midfielder Torreira is in advanced talks with Arsenal.

"We played Sampdoria once," Suarez told Telemundo earlier this season.

"I was surprised by the young lad who had been in the middle of the park for the whole match.

"After that evening, I learned he was Uruguayan, and from that moment, I started to follow him a bit in Serie A.

"He surprised me, he's improved a lot and been playing at a very high level.

"He came on the scene at a very young age, when it's not at all easy to assert yourself, but he succeeded in performing at a high level."
