Arsenal Firm Up Interest In Everton Target Lucas Torreira, Talks Under Way


Arsenal have firmed up their interest in Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira, who has also been linked with Everton, and have started talks to take him to the Emirates Stadium. 

Napoli have been looking at Torreira as a potential replacement for Jorginho, who is expected to sign for Manchester City.

The midfielder's release clause is set at €25m, but Napoli have been trying to work out a schedule of payments with Sampdoria to avoid having to pay the sum in one go.

But they now have serious competition for Torreira as, according to Sky Italia, Arsenal have burst into the race.

The Gunners are firm fans of the midfielder and have started negotiations in an effort to take him to London.

It is not clear whether Arsenal are aiming to pay Torriera's clause or work out a deal with Sampdoria.

Demands from the midfielder's agents are also claimed to be high and no agreement has been reached.

Napoli still want Torreira and the player's agent has asked for time until 15th June to assess the offers for his client.
