Lucas Torreira Arsenal

Lucas Torreira is on the verge of completing a move to Atletico Madrid, Goal can confirm.

Arsenal have also now agreed a deal with Atletico,which will see the midfielder head to Madrid on loan for the season - the transferwill include an option for the move to be made permanent next summer.

The only issue that now stands before Torreira completes his move to the Spanish capital is Atletico’s need to move a player on first.

Goal has been told that Atletiare reluctant to finalise the deal until that happens.

Ideally, Atletico would like to offload Mexican midfielder Hector Herrera, but so far they have been unable to find a taker for the 30-year-old. Herrera did hold talks with Zenit St. Petersburg, only for the potential move to fall through.

Thomas Lemar, meanwhile, is another who could leave.

The France international has endured a miserable time at the Wanda Metropolitano since his £55 million ($71m) move from Monaco in 2018.

Bayern Munich are interested in taking Lemar on loan, but talks with Atletico have hit a stumbling block.

Atletico want any deal to include an option to buy, but Munich only want to take Lemar as a short-term option to cover for the injured Leroy Sane.

There is also interest in Lemar from RB Leipzig, but the Bundesliga outfit are struggling for funds.

Should the World Cup winner leave, that would allow cash-strapped Atletico to push through their move for Torreira, who has his heart set on a switchto Spain.

The 24-year-old has yet to feature under Mikel Arteta this season, with Arsenal well aware of his desire to leave.

He is one of several players who Arsenal will sanction moves for ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline as they look to bring in cash and free up space on their wage bill.

Sead Kolasinac has been in talks with Bayer Leverkusen over a return to Germany, but sources at Arsenal have told Goal that no agreement has been reached over the former Schalke defender.
