The Trouble for Torreira

After a phased introduction to life at Arsenal last season, Lucas Torreira burst onto the scene in North London and was quickly feted as the answer to several of the team’s more persistent flaws.

Torreira’s introduction coincided with a 22 match unbeaten run that probably misled many observers as to the size of the Arsenal re-generation project.



However, as winter bit and Arsenal’s form proved to be a bit of a mirage, Torreira’s influence and eventually his involvement began to wane.



In the early autumn sunshine at Craven Cottage, as Emery’s side released the handbrake against a Fulham team who turned out to be desperately poor, the away stand sang, “we’ve got our Arsenal back.” It was also the day that the Torreira song was birthed.

Uruguay played in the World Cup in 2018 and the Copa America in 2019- they have another Copa America engagement in 2020 too.

The feeling that the Gunners had missed a top quality ball winner in front of the defence had pervaded for many years and if a fan base is feeling starved of a more agricultural style of player, presenting them with a Uruguayan defensive midfielder is bound to tickle some sweet spots.

Torreira played as a number 10 until his late teenage years after all.
