torino still battling atletico madrid for arsenal midfielder lucas torreiras signature

Torino are still in the hunt for Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira despite Atletico Madrid‘s heavy interest, according to reports.

Torreira has fallen out of favour at the Emirates under Mikel Arteta and he could be on his way out this summer in order to raise vital transfer funds.

And according to Sport Italia and Calciomercato, Serie A outfit Torino are still very much in the hunt for the Uruguayan despite Atletico currently winning the race for his signature.

It has also been reported that Torino directors are currently in London to negotiate a deal with Arsenal.

Once both sides can thrash out a deal, perhaps on loan with an obligation to buy, reports suggest agreeing personal terms should be relatively straight-forward. 

Torreira enjoyed his best spell of football under Marco Giampaolo at Sampdoria and is now interested in a reunion at Torino.

The 24-year-old burst onto the scene in some style in north London but he now appears to be out of the picture under Arteta.

Torreira hasn’t even made the bench for the Gunners in their opening two Premier League matches against Fulham and West Ham.

Arsenal may look to cash-in on Torreira to give them a spending boost in the summer transfer window, as they eye moves for top targets Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey.

Now the Government has asked the wealthier outfits to step in while it negotiates a wider bailout to the sports industry.

Clubs in the lower ­leagues face a turbulent financial future as, unlike Premier League giants, they rely on ticket sales.

Under the PM’s new Covid plans, pilots allowing 1,000 fans into EFL matches are ditched.

Sports bodies want the Government to support the industry as it did with the arts, which was given access to a £1.57billion package.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden is said to be ­trying to “identify ways we can support sport”.

Today the Premier League said they were “disappointed” fans would not be allowed in next month and said stadiums were safer than many other public spaces.

The Sun Says

RICH Premier League clubs should bail out lower league outfits facing Covid oblivion.

They are not just the lifeblood of their communities. They and their players are, in part, the lifeblood of the Prem too.

Some have rich owners, who must dig deep now that they are facing a season without fans. But many teams don’t. 

It would be a calamity to let them fail through no fault of their own.

A few, admittedly, are badly run — and the Prem would need strict guarantees on how a £200million donation would be spent by the 72 EFL clubs. 

Some people will say the Government should step in. But it cannot bail out every industry. That way lies ruin. In football’s case there’s another solution.

It’s right for wealthy Prem giants to fund a rescue. It’s in the national interest and their own too.

In a statement they said: “Football is not the same without attending fans and the football economy is unsustainable without them.

“Last season, Premier League clubs suffered £700m in losses and at present, our national game is losing more than £100m per month.

“This is starting to have a devastating impact on clubs and their communities.”

Micah Richards nearly MISSED Monday Night Football after getting locked in his dressing room!

micah richards nearly missed monday night football after getting locked in his dressing room

Micah Richards has admitted that he almost missed the start of Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football coverage after he found himself trapped inside his own dressing room for an hour and a half.

Behind the scenes footage hilariously showed an exasperated and very relieved Richards race into the studio as co-hosts David Jones and Jamie Carragher laughed at the former defender, just minutes before the trio were set to go live on Sky Sports.

Richards has revealed that it was the on-set staff who helped him reach his chair just in the nick of time, allowing him to analyse Manchester City‘s clash with Wolves at the Etihad in its entirety.

A day after his close shave, Richards tweeted: ‘Loved being on Sky Sports last night, but managed to get myself locked in the changing room for 90 mins before the show! 

‘Thanks to the staff for getting me out with 2 mins to spare – you’d never have known! @Carra23 & @DavidJonesSky were bricking doing the show without me.’

After managing to compose himself for the show, Sportsmail’s newest columnist went on to deliver an impassioned defence of his career and fellow pundit Alex Scott, following criticisms on social media.

In the last year, Richards has developed into one of Sky‘s most used and highly-respected analysts and has made a career for himself in journalism after retiring from professional football at the highest level. 

While his comments on both football and the Black Lives Matter movement have been heavily praised, Richards said on Monday night that he believes he is unfairly targeted online, as is Scott.

He went on to dismiss claims he was only hired because of the BLM movement and said he was hired on the merit of his hard work up until that point.

Richards also leapt to the defence of former England international Scott, who has herself been a victim of social media abuse in recent months after rising to prominence as a pundit.

Scott, the ex-Arsenal footballer and TV presenter aged 35, has been at the centre of much discussion – and relentless online trolling – amid rumours she’s set to become the new host of BBC’s A Question Of Sport, replacing Sue Barker, who was axed after 24 years.

But Richards described Scott as ‘absolutely incredible’ and ‘one of the best’ pundits he’s worked with.
