In the summer transfer window, Arsenal midfielder has revealed that he wants to join Fiorentina on a permanent basis.
In the summer of 2018, the Uruguayan international joined the north Londoners for a whopping £24 million. After Mikel Arteta arrived to the Emirates Stadium in December 2019, despite a strong start to life in the Premier League, he slid down the pecking order.
He spent the 2019/20 season on loan at Atletico Madrid before joining Fiorentina on a temporary basis last summer. He has now indicated his wish to become a permanent member of the Florence-based club.
Speaking to FanPage, he said: “My intention is to stay at Fiorentina, but the club will need to find an agreement with Arsenal. I am very well in Florence. I am very well in Italy.”
Torreira also claimed that the Premier League is the best league in the world, admitting that the intensity does not match in Spain or Italy. He added: “In England, however, I am ahead for the football product they offer.
“For me, the best football is played in the Premier League. I say this because I have had the opportunity to play in Italy, Spain and England, and in the Premier League, the pace is much more intense. It’s a football made up of many tears, coming and going. It’s more spectacular.
“And it’s much nicer to see for people who go to the stadium or see it on TV”.
