Arsenal FC midfielder Lucas Torreira has made it known he wants to return to South America with Boca Juniors being the first option.
However, other clubs like those in Brazil are starting talks with the 25-year-old’s representatives. According to Twitter (Going through Mark), Flamengo is the first of the Brazilian giants to take a public interest in Torreira.
Torreira will be on loan for the 2021-22 season as Arsenal will not stand in the way of the midfielder who wants to be closer to his family after losing his mother to COVID-19.
Boca Juniors appear to have the upper hand when the player has said he would like to play for the Argentina side. Nonetheless, if Boca Juniors don’t get a deal with Arsenal for the player, Flamengo is ready to pounce on the player.
Flamengo is financially stronger than Boca Juniors so they would have no problem paying the loan fees to the English club. The Brazilian side currently has compatriot Uruguyan Giorgian De Arrascaeta to speak to Torreira about the direction of Ro de Janeiro.
