Torino rule out signing Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira

Torino have ruled out signing Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira.

The 24-year-old is believed to have cited Torino as one of the clubs he could join in Italy, but the Serie A side's sporting director has now said that they will struggle to afford him.

"Torreira is a top player but his price is too high," said Toro chief Davide Vagnati.

"It's difficult to sign him from Arsenal, not just for us."

Gunners boss Arteta has remained tight-lipped on the future of Torreira, but he is believed to be one of the players the club are willing to allow to leave the club before the closure of the transfer window.
