Lucas Torreira (signed, closed)


For 30m that sounds fairly cheap for a player that is quite highly rated.

I don’t know much about him, is he more of a prospect than a first team regular?


Fair play to Arsenal. Paying €30m for a guy with a €25m release clause after we were burned so badly by only bidding £1 over the release clause last time.

Lesson learned, big progress :clap:




5mil goes to the agent



Nah he’ll be first team regular if we sign him.


By 30 june? Can we do it this week? Thanks.


I don’t want to get my hopes up just yet but I’ve already preplanned buying a Torreira away shirt!

Didn’t Sampdoria prefer 30M Euro over a long period as opposed to the 25M Euro r/c? It’s possibly a sum we would have quibbled over in the past. Just hoping we follow through in a proactive way now the path looks clear. Only ourselves to blame if this somehow backfires.



Cant get hyped before Orny returns from his Bahamas holiday.


Not a single concrete source has reported our interest in him. I can’t see us signing him to be honest with you.


Buzzkill… Pffft…!


Di Marzio?


Yeah Di Marzio is Ornstein levels of concrete interest no?

Actual buzzing that we are signing the best young midfielder in Italy!!

More buzzing for @titou14 tho as this is his guy haha. He’s been posting about him for ages


Wasn’t aware that he’d reported - so there must be an element of truth in it somehow but I’m still not optimistic.




Is he better than this guy?


Yes is he even a DM/CM aswell?

I thought he was a #10 / winger?


I don’t know, I thought he was a CM who could play as a DM and AM as well. I asked because of your signature. Haven’t seen much of both of these players but noticed the hype around Milinkovic-Savic.

I did a quick comparison for the first time. I’m usually not a big fan of stats comparisons but thought it would be interesting to compare these two with Xhaka. Here you go:


Haha I’m not Serbian. There my team in the World Cup on OA


He is just that and shit hot as well.
