Torreira: ‘I want to stay at Fiorentina’

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has expressed his desire to remain at Fiorentina when his loan ends. The Uruguayan international spent the last season on loan with La Viola but previous reports suggested the two sides had failed to reach an agreement over a permeant move, despite Fiorentina having an option to sign him outright for €15m.

Speaking with, Torreira expressed his desire to remain in Florence but emphasized that the clubs will need to come to an agreement:

My intention is to stay at Fiorentina. But it will be necessary for the club to find an agreement with Arsenal. I’m perfectly fine in Florence. In am fine in Italy.

It was a very positive year, even if we failed to qualify for Europa League. Perhaps, we deserved something more, but in the end, when you lose games, it means that you did not do everything you could.

Sometimes, you must accept that opponents may be superior. Much credit goes to the coach, who made me feel important to the team.

Personally, I felt very loved by the teammates and fans, and when you have confidence in your means and feel trust from people around you, everything goes for the best. All these conditions helped me make it to the top and reach my record for goals in a season.

People are very kind in Italy, I love the quality of life. Whenever I can travel through different regions and cities I see the similarity of the city centres, with historical architectures. I feel like in the past, like nothing’s changed.”
