Club executives reportedly believe Arsenal will lower their demands as the transfer window goes on, so they’re willing to wait a bit longer before making an official offer for the midfielder.
Whilst that makes sense, the plan does fall apart if all that other interest from Italy is genuine.
Fiorentina may struggle to win a six-man bidding war if they leave their opening offer until late in the window. So they’re relying on all other clubs in the race taking the same approach.
It’s no real surprise to see Lucas Torreira on the transfer market. Despite making 39 appearances for Arsenal this season, he really didn’t seem like a first-choice player under Mikel Arteta. Both before and after his ankle injury which worsten his case he was mostly settling for substitute appearances.
But Arsenal appear to have big recruitment plans this summer, and they need to raise funds. They won’t let Torreira go for nothing, so expect this transfer to drag on.
