Sky: Milan make enquiry about Arsenal midfielder as possible alternative to Chelsea man

By Oliver Fisher -

After being repeatedly linked with Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira last summer and even during January, the links have once again resurfaced.

Despite a midfield department that already boasts the likes of Ismael Bennacer, Franck Kessie and Sandro Tonali, the Rossoneri management are understood to be keen on completing it with one more signing to give head coach Stefano Pioli two quality pairings to work with.

It seems as though Chelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko would be that man, but Gianluca Di Marzio told Sky Italia (via MilanNews) on Thursday night that an old name has returned to the limelight.

He claims that Milan made an enquiry about Lucas Torreira of Arsenal, with the Uruguay international keen on returning to Italy after a tough last few months in London.

Marco Giampaolo wants him at Torino, but Milan have started contacts to understand the intentions of the player, and it remains to be seen if this will become more concrete.
