After arriving in a £26m deal from Sampdoria last summer, Lucas Torreira quickly turned himself into a bit of a cult hero at the Emirates with his all-action performances.
The diminutive Uruguayan wrote himself into folklore when he netted the fourth in Arsenal’s dramatic 4-2 win over north London rivals Tottenham in the Premier League and enjoyed an impressive debut campaign.

However, in a press conference ahead of Uruguay’s next Copa America clash against Peru, Torreira revealed that he was “happy” at Arsenal and that nobody from Milan had gotten in touch with him.

Many felt that Torreira’s revelation could be seen as the end of the brewing transfer saga surrounding him and even claimed the news felt like a “new signing”.
