Arsenal plan swap offer for Roma midfielder Diawara

Roma midfielder Amadou Diawara is interesting Arsenal.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Arsenal could let out-of-favour midfielder Lucas Torreira join Roma in a swap deal involving Guinea international Diawara.

Torreira has admitted he faces leaving the Gunners after making just 17 appearances in the Premier League this season and could make the same move as Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who has been on loan at Roma.

Roma have confirmed they are being taken over by US billionaire Dan Friedkin and want to build on their 'excellent relations' with Arsenal to agree the switch.

Diawara joined Roma from Napoli last summer and became a regular starter from November, although he missed 13 matches through injuries.
