He Arsenal beat Liverpool on penalties in the Community Shield final. Mikel Arteta’s ‘Gunners’ took their first title of the season – the second of the year after the FA Cup. An achievement that evidenced the good time the team is going through with the Spanish coach. However, not all are lights, since the meeting hinted at the departure of Lucas Torreira, who could sign for the Fiorentina.
The Uruguayan midfielder was not even summoned by his coach to play the final. All a declaration of intentions that shows that the next campaign has no place in the English team. The footballer’s agents are already looking for a new destination that could be in Italy, the same country where he made a name in the world of football, hand in hand with Sampdoria.
However, this decision is new, since Torreira entered Arteta’s plans before and after the stoppage due to the coronavirus crisis. In his two seasons with Arsenal he has not emerged as an important attacking player, but as a key player in the balance of the midfield in the team that Unai Emery led at the time.
This season he has played a total of 39 official matches with the London team, in which he has managed to score two goals and distribute an assist. Fiorentina follows his footsteps very closely and everything indicates that the footballer will return to Italy through a transfer.
