Milan are keeping tabs with Arsenal star Lucas Torreira and planning to make a bid in July when the transfer window opens again. Rossoneri have problems in the midfield as Franck Kessie linked with several clubs, Lucas Biglia and Ricardo Montolivo already up to 32, Tiemoue Bakayoko will return to Chelsea, and they need replacement.

Uruguay international is the perfect option in this situation as he had a fantastic season and proved his worth one more time. Italian club set to spend big money on the footballer during the summer transfer window. Lucas joined the London club from Sampdoria in 2018 with a €30m deal.

He is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and a crucial figure for the club. In this campaign, Torreira played 50 matches, scored two goals and made five assists in all tournament. It is an impressive result, and he can do much more during the next season.

The 23-year-old player has contracted with the Gunners until 2023, and his release clause is around €55m. He regularly plays in the national team and also helped them to reach the quarter-final in the 2018 World Cup, but after losing 2-0 with Les Bleus, they kicked out from the competition.

Uruguayan midfielder played in the Europa League final against Chelsea where Arsenal lost 1-4 and missed the opportunity to get the Champions League ticket. Rossoneri will do everything to sign him this July, but it will be difficult as Arsenal aren’t going to sell such a prominent person during the transfer window. Gennaro Gattuso left Milan last month, and Marco Giampaolo will be the new manager.
