Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has further distanced himself from reports that he could be heading back to Italy.
Torreira has been linked with a move to AC Milan with the Italian side making approach for the Uruguayan international who now insists he feels home at Arsenal. The 23-year-old denied reports that he has been contacted by Milan.
“It’s been a pretty big change for me. Genoa is a much smaller city than London, but every week I feel more comfortable and learn new things about the way of life,” Torreira told Four Four Two.
“When I arrived, we saw traditional landmarks, trying to get my bearings. Now it feels more like home. It was the best option. This is a huge club with massive support across the world. The fans and everyone associated with the club have made me feel so welcome. I really feel like a part of the family here.”
Unai Emery is keen to keep the midfielder as he targets to reinforce his side ahead of the new season but his plans have hit the rock due to club’s budget. And there are reports transfer chiefs are set to appeal to club owner Stan Kroenke for further transfer funds.
