Yeah Torreira’s a defensive mid but not in the traditional sense, he’s kinda like a cross between a destroyer and a deep lying midfielder.
The only downside to his game is that he’s only 5’6 so he’s not gonna win that many headers but tackling wise he can go toe to toe with the best of them. He’s literally bodied both Ninja (Nainggolan) & Kessie this season and they’re both tanks.
And on top of his ability to break break the lines with his passing, his tackling & his technique he’s also added goals to his game this season too.
You might be able to tell but I love this little guy, he’s my favorite Cm in Europe this season (outside the top teams) just ahead of Ndombele & Mlinkovic-Savic.
