Lazio boost as Fiorentina set deadline for Arsenal midfielder Torreira

Fiorentina are demanding an end to the transfer saga around Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira.

The Mirror says Fiorentina have issued a deadline of this Friday for Arsenal to agree terms for Torreira.

Torreira spent last season on loan with Fiorentina and were keen to make his move permanent.

But talks between the two sides have reached an impasse over Torreira's transfer fee.

Fiorentina are unwilling to pay the previously agreed £12m fee for Torreira, and will pay no more than £8m for the midfielder.

Also interested in the Uruguay midfielder is Lazio.
