Gilberto Silva believes Lucas Torreira still has Arsenal future

Former Arsenal captain Gilberto Silva believes Lucas Torreira still has a future at the club.

The midfielder is currently on-loan with Atletico Madrid.

Gilberto told Ladbrokes: “I think Torreira had a good start to his career at Arsenal.

“He played some really good games but then last season he played some not-so-good games and was dropped to the bench as a result.

“In the end he moved to Atletico Madrid on loan but I still believe he has a chance at Arsenal.

“At some point players will believe they don't have a chance at a team - especially when a new manager comes in.

“But Torreira definitely has quality. He's a great player."
