Lucas Torreira and his big chance at Arsenal FC: a touch of royal transfer
Lucas Torreira only really played his way into the international spotlight at the World Cup. The 22-year-old Uruguayan is to strengthen the centre at Arsenal next season.
The change had already begun. It was not without reason that the Arsenal fans received the newcomer frenetically. Even the flight of the Uruguayan was tracked by the Gunners followers. Before the first rumors, the defensive midfielder had hardly anyone on the piece of paper. At least not the fans.
Arsenal were not the only team that wanted the Uruguayan, however, RB Leipzig and BVB also showed great interest at the beginning of the year.
Especially in the World Cup defeat against France, Torreira showed why. He was the most stable man in Uruguay midfield before the defence. He clearly had the most ball wins and was much involved in the game structure.
