Lucas Torreira left Arsenal a matter of time.

It has been clear for some time that the Uruguay international has no future at Arsenal under Mikel Arteta.

He has been closely linked with a return to Italy, joining the Gunners for £27m four years ago.

But the young midfielder is now ready to move to Galatasaray in Turkey, his agent suggested this week.

Tuttomercatoweb reports that a £5.8m departure from north London is now ‘just one step’.

Lucas Torreira leaving Arsenal makes perfect sense.

The ex-Sampdoria terrier would want to have his country at the World Cup in a few months and without regular football in Europe it is impossible.

Described by Unai Emery as “quality” during an exciting first season at the Emirates Stadium, Torreira became increasingly inconsistent, leaving Arteta to have no long-term plan at Arsenal.

There is certainly a very talented footballer, but unfortunately, he is no longer able to perform at the level that Arteta deems sufficient.

The 26-year-old has made 63 appearances in the Premier League, barring a major shock at this point, he won’t be ranked 64th.

Arsenal kicked off their Premier League campaign with a visit to Crystal Palace tonight.
