    In that case he should only be used in "big" games where we would need to set up as a dedicated DM. I want us imposing our game in 80% of matches now, therefore if what you're saying about Torreira is true (and I agree it is) he is of no use to us for 80% of the time.

    Don't want either of those. Looking at the Milan squad I would only be interested in Romagnoli (we could use a left-footed CB who is good on the ball). Reading rumours a €40m bid by Barcelona was rejected for him though, so would likely be a straight swap.

    I would much rather fix the midfield by reverting to a midfield three as described by @The_Playmaker though. In that case we only have to replace Ramsey and Xhaka.

    Bit unrealistic. The 10 games against our top 6 'rivals' entail 26% of the games and teams like Leicester, Watford, Wolves, Everton on a good day will provide a tough challenge (especially away). That means we better make sure we have our midfield set up well for those games.

    Think he's good enough on the ball to contribute even when not playing as a dedicated DM. Otherwise, there is no issue with rotating in a more offensive midfield when necessary. He'll contribute plenty.

    Funny because it was the complete opposite for me.. Crying on the bench with around 30 min left of the game is not a good look..

    Milan can piss off. We don't want any of their rejects included in the deal. It would just give me more players to hate.

    I hope that Raul will tell Ivan baldy personally to make proper bid or f*ck off and stop unsettling our player.

    Ornstein says that while AC Milan admires Torreira, he is not a focus of their attention because they know his asking price would be prohibitive and they have other targets. So if you believe Ornstein, I guess that's that then.

    The best bit about Orny news is that he basically quashed this BS and that Torreira wants to stay.

    He is staying!

    Hopefully he will show he has adjusted to new league and give us something of this Kante+Cazorla magic next season! I had hopes Lacazette would do a Suarez in his second season, didn't work out but I have faith in our little fellah!

    Even if he is here next season you would think we won't see him play until late August at the earliest with his ongoing participation for Uruguay. Not exactly ideal.

    The Arsenal source is hardly going to brief Orny that Lucas is unhappy & wants out.

    Played it cool with the standard 'every player has his price' line... ball with Milan & Ivan The Terrible now.

    Exchange for Piatek so we can sell one of our strikers and reinvest. Otherwise keep moving Ivan.

    He's barely playing for Uruguay though. Only made a fleeting substitution here and there. Should be fresh.

    There is no way Milan would pay 45m so it would have to be Kessie and some cash in installements

    We not interested in any swap it seems we want at least 45M they either pay it or Lucas is staying

    Then he is staying. Their fund wont invest 45m, only if they sell players before. They have worse owners than us.

    Kessie and Rodriguez are not at our level. It's big money now or no deal.
