ARSENAL TRANSFER NEWS 2019 - TORREIRA RESPONS TO AC MILAN TRANSFER RUMOURS
LUCAS TORREIRA has revealed there has been no contact over a possible move to AC Milan - but he admits he has struggled to adapt to life at Arsenal. Torreira has been linked with a move away from Arsenal less than 12 months after joining from Sampdoria for £26million.
The Uruguay international became a fan favourite with the Emirates faithful and many supporters were worried over a potential exit. But the 23-year-old has moved to quash claims he wants to leave the club and return to Italy.
Torreira was speaking at a press conference ahead of Saturday’s Copa America quarter-final against Peru. And he says he is happy at Arsenal, despite finding it hard to adapt to life in England.
“Nobody from AC Milan has got in touch with me, today I'm in the Premier and happy to be part of the Arsenal,” Torreira said.
“It cost me the adaptation, it's not easy, but I only think about that team.
“I’m happy to be there.”
Rumours over Torreira’s future came after he said he preferred life in Italy than in England earlier this month. The midfielder, who made 50 appearances in his first season at Arsenal, said the language barrier was one of the biggest obstacles.
“I don’t know if there are many things that I enjoy,” Torreira said in early June.
“I think it was better in Italy. England is a totally different world, a very large country.
“The language [barrier] has cost me, to be able to relate with my peers and with the people. It is very difficult when you can’t have dialogue.
“And so is the climate. You go out in the morning and it is cloudy, you arrive late to your home and it is cloudy.
“It is strange a little bit, the sun, the more of us that we are here and we are accustomed to having always or almost always the sun.
"But as the years pass, I’m going to be adapting.”
