Lucas Torreira considered as last minute option


Roma will spend the remainder of this transfer window trying to off-load as many names as possible. Players like Florenzi, Olsen, Pedro and Nzonzi await their new destinations.

In the meantime, the club may consider moving on from either Diawara or Villar. If an offer were to arrive for one of them, Roma may consider bringing in an additional reinforcement for their midfield.

According to calciomercato.it, the capital club are in contact with Lucas Torreira and may bring him in as a last minute solution before the end of the transfer window.

The 25-year-old Uruguayan does not fit Arsenal’s plans and is looking to move.

Roma could reportedly bring him on a dry loan. His current wages are quite high – €4.5 million – but the player represents a valid alternative to other names such as Zakaria of Borussia Mönchengladbach.
