    Fair play, can you link or tell me which page that's on? I must've missed it.

    Selling Torreira for 24m sounds like a dream to me.

    The agreement is still premature only tuttosport report it even tho they from Torino they not as reliable as La Stampa.

    No, people need to stop criminally undervaluing our players because of their biases. I don't rate Torreira but the fact is he's a Uruguayan international with plenty of PL & Serie A experience and is still only 24. He's a year removed from being valued 50m pounds on Transfermarkt due to his performances and appearances under Bumnai.

    Fact is he's easily worth what we paid for, especially to Serie A clubs that are familiar with him as he performed well in that league. We're actually selling him right now at a significant loss in value due to a poor season hampered by injuries. Most would hold onto an asset like him, but I understand with our pursuits of Aouar & Partey, that's not realistic. But because of that pursuit, doesn't mean we give him away.

    For more context, this is like the Raptors trading Siakam right now after that playoff performance. It's silly. Unless we get what we paid for, we're getting ****ed. Simple.

    Torino is a pretty poor move for him, but I’m not surprised given with how limited he is.

    Similar to Sampdoria he'll preform well there if he back to form like in 2018 so a move to better Italian club like Napoli Roma even Milan wouldn't surprise me he still 24 years old

    Yeah, we'll have to agree to disagree.

    The fact that a talent like Elneny is (rightly) preferred to him says it all about his talent level. Extremely limited footballer and the type of talent that is all over the place, even in very very modest clubs. (Brentford/our own Josh Dasilva, for example, is probably a similar level player already, with more projection)

    We well overpaid for him and he's not an asset whatsoever for a club of our status or our ambitions, but rather an out of place deadwood.

    They were fighting relegation too, maybe he's not as highly rated in Italy as many on here believe if they're the club who's gonna end up getting him.

    Make no sense loan him 2 years and then sell him for 24m because he'll have only 1 year left of his contract

    Reminds me of the GVB and Edu siutations, good players but we have better players ahead them to start.

    I'll be sorry to see him leave.

    Torino is coached by his former boss Giampaolo, that's why he is interested to move. He could get a better club but financially Italian league is in a dire state.

    They make it sound like Arsenal made him walk to Torino with his short feet.

    Poor guy. Taking that long for sure. I think he is religious so luckily can take it as a pilgrimage. Hope he arrives before the window closes.

    It makes sense, kinda. Torino probably can’t afford his wages so we’ll pay absorb of it for the first two years and then they take care of the last year and get him to a new contract that’s more affordable for them. We get the half of the transfer fee as a loan fee and the rest as a transfer fee.

    Knew this fee was too good to be true. Surely Torino can't cover the full £75k a week considering their highest paid player Belotti is on £55k a week? I bet we're covering a sizeable chunk of his wages over this two year loan.

    Hopefully this is the last time we do business with Italian clubs. Cheap wankers
