Agent demands Arsenal clarity for Lucas Torreira

The agent of Lucas Torreira is urging Arsenal to make a decision about his client's future.

The Uruguay midfielder has been linked with Roma, Fiorentina, Torino and Atletico Madrid.

"There are many requests for information, but nothing official yet, so there are no written offers on the table," Pablo Bentancur told Calciomercato.com.

"The player trains with Arsenal, they own him, he is one of the few cases of athletes who arrive in England and immediately played 50 games in a row. After a nasty injury, he did not need surgery, but the recovery process was still difficult and took a while. Now the coach and Arsenal must decide whether they need Torreira or not."

On interest from Torino, Bentancur said: "Football must be divided into two parts, sports and economic areas. In sporting terms, Torreira is perfect for Torino and he would be reunited with Marco Giampaolo after his time at Sampdoria.

"At the same time, we must be realistic and acknowledge that Arsenal will have some very big demands, while Lucas' salary is also a bit too high for Torino."
