Torreira to Turkey : Former gamers on the transfer

Rate this post

Morning all.

Lucas Torreira seems like the newest man out the door as he’s been linked strongly with Sampdoria … Valencia … Random Italian membership … Membership you’ve by no means heard of … Membership that has simply been fashioned … Struggle Membership … Membership Tropicana … and ultimately … Galatasaray.

Reportedly it’s a everlasting deal, I noticed a payment of round £5.5m talked about, which is considerably lower than the €15m we’d agreed with Fiorentina earlier than they determined they didn’t need to pay that in any respect. Since then, he’s been scratching round searching for someplace, anyplace, to play subsequent season – and assuming he’s keen to go to Turkey, this seems prefer it’ll be his Arsenal escape route.

I keep in mind after we signed him, I believed he was a wonderful addition to the squad. Tigerish within the sort out, saved the ball shifting nicely, however then issues went a bit south. I suppose the primary challenge was Unai Emery insisting on taking part in him a lot larger up the pitch, and I’m positive he had his causes, however then so too does the chef who decides to sprinkle grated canine toenails on prime of scrambled eggs. You flip one thing easy and scrumptious into one thing that simply doesn’t work. (I realise that is an imperfect comparability, nevertheless it’s early within the day).

It’s fascinating to notice that he began 6 of Mikel Arteta’s first 8 video games when he took over, then misplaced his place, however made common substitute appearances, earlier than sustaining that nasty harm in opposition to Portsmouth within the FA Cup. Then, Covid hit. He didn’t work his approach again in, expressed some want to go elsewhere and was loaned to Atletico Madrid. I believed that will be good for him, working with Diego Simeone, however he barely performed there.

Throughout that interval he suffered a household bereavement and spoke brazenly about eager to go play for Boca Juniors so he may very well be nearer to dwelling, and at that time the supervisor will need to have made up his thoughts a couple of participant who – even when it was comprehensible – had his coronary heart set on being elsewhere. Again to Italy, an awesome mortgage spell at Fiorentina, and right here we’re.

As an apart, I don’t actually know what extra Arsenal or the participant may have accomplished to boost his profile. He performed nicely in Serie A final season, that they had an settlement to promote him, however after that broke down the marketplace for him has clearly been very, very small (very similar to Torreira himself). Let’s see if the Galatasaray factor occurs, as a result of at this level it’s simply a kind of issues we have to get accomplished and transfer on. And I don’t actually know what’s left for him if this doesn’t undergo.

Nonetheless, I do suppose his objective in opposition to that lot was a memorable second, and whilst you would possibly say it’s indicative of a paucity of actual success in the previous couple of years, any objective that stamps on their necks and wraps up a North London derby is one thing to take pleasure in.

There’s not quite a bit occurring this morning from an Arsenal perspective, however as we’ve stated, hopefully the squad is trimmed down through the week, nevertheless it’s additionally price remembering that it’s solely August 2nd. The switch window is open till 11pm on September 1st, throughout which era now we have 5 Premier League video games. That’s principally nonetheless a whole month, and my robust recommendation is prepare for lots of stuff to go proper to the tip of the window, as a result of that’s kinda what occurs once you’re making an attempt to shift a clutch of gamers you don’t really need and everybody is aware of you don’t really need them.

It is likely to be irritating, particularly because it seems as if any extra incomings depend upon gamers going the opposite approach, however to be truthful I believe we’ve accomplished good and necessary enterprise thus far this summer season, and if there’s extra to come back, we’re going to be dictated to by the market itself and the way that strikes within the subsequent few weeks.

Elsewhere, some former Gunners are on the transfer. After having his contract cancelled at Juventus (we’re not the one ones who do it!), Aaron Ramsey has signed for Good. Which is good. The French Riviera is fairly first rate a part of the world to spend the ultimate years of your profession, however they completed fifth final season, simply 3 factors off third and Champions League soccer, so it’s not a retirement dwelling. They’ll play on this season’s Europa League, identical to us. What odds on a Rambo Reunion in some unspecified time in the future?

Nevertheless, Aaron has nothing on the grasp of good locations to dwell and work: Cesc Fabregas. He’s gone from Barcelona to London to Barcelona, again to London, then to Monaco, and yesterday he formally signed for Como 1907. They play in Serie B, with their stadium proper on the southern tip of Lake Como in Northern Italy.

I imply … Mamma mia!

Como 1907 Fabregas

The person is aware of tips on how to play soccer in prime locations, there’s no two methods about it. Curiously, he’s additionally turn into a shareholder within the membership, and in the event you’ve watched him on TV doing occasional punditry, you’ll know he speaks very intelligently in regards to the sport. So, one thing to maintain half an eye fixed on as we problem for the title this season.

Proper, that’s your lot this morning, have one.
