TURIN COMPLICATED TORREIRA OFFERS
Talks continue between Arsenal and Serie A Torino over midfielder Lucas Torreira, but it has been reported that the Italian side are complicating negotiations.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has told Torreira he has little future in the Emirates this season and the player is constantly linked with a return to Italy.
Torino appears to be the most serious contender for his services, but the Daily Star reports that the Granata are looking to insert a myriad of clauses into the deal.
It is reported that Torino would loan out the Uruguayan initially and only keep Torreira permanently if a series of goals are met.
These would include qualifying for the Europa League, recording a specific number of appearances, goals and assists, and receiving a number of international orders.
Arsenal are claiming £ 22million for the 24-year-old.
