Agent reveals Lucas Torreira is unhappy with life at Arsenal


Lucas Torreira’s agent has revealed that the Arsenal midfielder is currently unhappy with how he’s being utilised by coach Unai Emery.

Torreira has been used sparingly by the Spaniard so far this season and has recently been linked with a move to Napoli.

And Pablo Bentancur has claimed that the Uruguay international could potentially try and force his way out of north London come the end of the season if things persist.

“Torreira is doing well at Arsenal, although the change of role doesn’t make him happy, but it must be said that this year the whole team is not doing well,” he told Sport Witness.

“It was difficult to take Torreira at the time, now I don’t know how things are, but I think Arsenal wants to retain him.

“In the new role he is not at ease, but we respect the coach’s decisions, after that we’ll see what happens.”

He went on to suggest that a move to Napoli was one that would interest the 23-year-old.

“Torreira was upset when he missed the chance to join Napoli,” he added.

“Why? Because he is Uruguayan. To tell you, he wants to end his career at Boca and Napoli is an environment very similar to that of Boca. Naples future destination? In football anything can happen.”
