ATLETICO MADRID are reportedly in talks to sign Lucas Torreira from Arsenal – potentially clearing the way for Thomas Partey’s arrival.

Mikel Arteta has not been a huge fan of the Uruguayan since arriving in North London, handing him only seven league starts in ten months.

And talks with Atletico Madrid have reportedly taken place over a potential loan deal, with a view to a permanent move.



That is according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano and South America’s Sebas Giovanelli, the latter believing a deal is close.

Torreira, 24, has also been discussing a £22million switch to Serie A side Torino.

Last month, the midfielder admitted his future may lie elsewhere, telling Sport 890: “I have a contract with the club and I have to respect it, obviously if I have to leave it will be for the best.

“We have to be calm and wait.”

With the coronavirus pandemic hitting Atletico hard, it is thought they need to sell players before completing signings.

That could involve Partey, 27, who is a long-term targets of the Gunners’.

Atletico are demanding they pay his full £45m release clause although Arsenal may attempt to negotiate that down amid the Torreira talks.

A new contract offer for the Ghana midfielder, currently tied down to 2023, is said to have been rejected by the player.

Arteta is also tracking Houssem Aouar and it is claimed the club cannot afford both the Lyon star and Partey.

Rated at around £44m, Aouar has been described as the priority if Arsenal can only bring in one of the midfielders.

The Emirates Stadium outfit are under financial constraints themselves and are looking to shift a number of fringe players to continue Arteta’s overhaul.

Emiliano Martinez has already left with Matteo Guendouzi, Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Sead Kolasinac all said to be up for sale.

However, Arteta has decided against letting Rob Holding or Ainsley Maitland-Niles leave despite initially holding talks over exits to Newcastle and Wolves, respectively.

The England midfielder, 24, suffered a shoulder knock in the 1-0 defeat to Wolves.

Phillips does not need surgery and the club confirmed he has already begun rehab.

A statement read: “Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips suffered a shoulder injury in last night’s Premier League defeat to Wolves at Elland Road.

“Whilst we are pleased to confirm that surgery is not required, the Leeds born England International could still face up to six weeks on the sidelines.

“Kalvin began his rehab at Thorp Arch this morning and will be working hard with the medical team to return to action as soon as possible.”

Phillips is set to miss games against Aston Villa, Leicester, Crystal Palace, Arsenal and Everton.

And he is also unlikely to play any part in England’s Nations League matches against Belgium and Iceland.

Phillips was knocked over by Wolves ace Raul Jimenez around ten minutes from the end of the defeat at Elland Road last night.

The Leeds man landed awkwardly on his right shoulder but played out the rest of the match.

Boss Marcelo Bielsawho could soon be Yorkshire Tea’s new TV face – will have to find cover to fill the defensive midfield role Phillips has made his own.

And the Argentine gaffer will have other injury concerns too.

Liam Cooper pulled out of the Wolves defeat in the warm-up and Pascal Strujik looked to injure his ankle just before Jimenez’s deflected strike found the net 20 minutes from time.
