Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira actually has three clubs to pick from, as he considers a move away from the Emirates Stadium, CalcioMercato report.

Torreira has been heavily linked with a move to Atletico Madrid recently, but the Italian source plays down the Spanish side’s chances of landing him.

While it has seemed practically a done deal elsewhere, Calcio Mercato insist that Fiorentina and Roma still have a chance of landing the Arsenal man.

The news that three clubs are all vying for Torreira’s signature could be good news for Arsenal.

The Gunners are trying to raise the maximum funds for their fringe players, as they plan their own additions, and they will surely be hoping that a bidding war for Torreira ensues.

It is not clear what would be Torreira’s preferred choice at the moment, but he has played in Italy before with Sampdoria, so a return to Serie A could appeal.

Torreira was not even included in Arsenal’s match day squad yesterday, which clearly indicates that his days with the North London side are numbered.
