Fiorentina loanee Torreira admits being starstruck at Arsenal

Fiorentina loanee Lucas Torreira admits he was starstruck at Arsenal.

The Uruguay midfielder is on-loan at Fiorentina from the Gunners.

The midfielder, 26, signed for The Gunners in 2018 when the club boasted stars such as Petr Cech, Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny.

Torreira admitted he was a little starstruck at some of the names he saw by his side as he prepared for matches.

In a public letter titled 'Made in Fray Bentos', Torreira wrote: “Every time I go to the national team, I try to make the most of my proximity to certain champions. I have been lucky enough to meet many of them.

“At Arsenal, in the dressing room, Mesut Özil and Alexandre Lacazette sat next to me. Madness.

“You can imagine; me drinking and them next to me. Here we are, in London."
