Arsenal are adamant that Lucas Torreira won’t be sold to AC Milan this summer, according to a report in Italy.

Sky Sport Italia, as quoted by Sky Sports, is reporting that Arsenal are planning to keep the Uruguay international beyond the summer transfer window despite AC Milan’s interest in the defensive midfielder.

The same article states that incoming AC Milan manager Marco Giampaolo is keen to reunite with former Sampdoria midfielder Torreira at the San Siro outfit.

According to the same story, Arsenal are not interested in cashing-in on the Uruguayan star in the 2019 summer transfer window and AC Milan will have to look elsewhere.

Torreira moved to Arsenal in a £26m deal from Serie A outfit Sampdoria in the 2018 summer transfer window ahead of his participation with Uruguay in the World Cup in Russia.

The South American star scored two goals in 34 games in the Premier League last season but Torreira couldn’t help Arsenal to finish in the top four despite his displays.

Torreira contributed vital assists in Arsenal’s aggregate victories over Napoli and Valencia as the north London side managed to reach the Europa League final.

However, Arsenal slumped to a humiliating 4-1 loss to bitter rivals Chelsea FC in the European showpiece in Baku last month.
