Lucas Torreira is the big dream of Marco Giampaolo and it is reported that Milan are working on their first bid.

Rade Krunić has joined Milan from Empoli (although it is still not official), but it’s very clear that more midfielders will be arriving in the club this summer, as Paolo Maldini, Zvonimir Boban and Frederic Massara have identified this department as the most problematic one.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Milan are seriously interested in Arsenal’s Lucas Torreira, who worked under Marco Giampaolo at Sampdoria. Di Marzio adds that the 23-year-old Uruguayan is considered the ideal reinforcement to lead the Milan midfield, as he’s young and of quality.

The Rossoneri management are now studying and preparing the first offer to present to Arsenal to bring the player back to Italy. It is said that the player would gladly return to the peninsula to work under Giampaolo again, and that Milan are working on the bid with the entourage of the player.

It remains unclear if Arsenal are willing to part ways with Torreira, who had a great debut season in the Premier League, and even if they do – it would very expensive as they got him for €30m last year.

i hope the deal for all the players that milan wanted will be sealed asap
i want them to join the training ground right from the start to build chemistry


Although that would have been for the best, but I don’t think we can do it that quickly. we offering every one 1-2 year loan deals with the option/obligation (depending on your source). I would rather they took as much time as needed but at the end bring the better players, such as Cabellos, Kovacic, Torriera, Hernandez… With these 4, plus I like the idea of getting Llorente and De Rossi for free, has experience in Serie A had a solid season with the Spurs and the other guy doesn;t need an introduction that guy is a legend. I also… Read more »


40 € for Torreira, or 35 € for Bakayoko. Which one do you think is better?




Bakayoko was good for Rino’s defensive approach but Torreira is ideal for offensive play Giampaolo promotes. Torreira anytime


Toreira is better defensively and offensively


Totally agree


Agreed !


Exactly. Bakayoko doesn’t fit the system and style of football Giampaolo likes to play which requires a regista to play the ball out from the back.


I vote for bakayoko


Bakayoko would cost us 40M as well. we paid 5M in advance.

Bring Torrera n Ceballos ASAP


This should be an easy deal, Arsenal are ready to sell for 40mil which is fair, Torreira handed a transfer request so he wants to come to Milan as well. The problems are coming from our side first we dont want to pay 40mil second Eliot does not want any new player to have a sallary higher then 2.5mil, Torreira salary in Arsenal is 3.6mil. If we cant get Troreira i say we need to have a look at Diwara from Napoli he is a similar player and a cheaper option. But Torreira should be the first choise.


diawara will go to roma as part of manolas deal
the other option di marzio write is praet


Praet is not a defensive mid, like Diwara and Torreira. Praet is considered for the right side, he can play as a side mid or attacking mid, however Vetrout can play as a DM but its not his natural position so he is an option as well for DM. We are looking for one defensive and one side mid at the moment. Other option for DM can be Tonali as well, but he would cost a bit more, and if Milan does not want to pay 40mil for some one like Torreira i doubt they will want to splash money… Read more »


What is the asking price of Tonali?


Brescia reportedly rejected PSG offer of 30 millions for Tonali and are holding out for 40 at least


We should get Leandro Peredes on loan from PSG. He is perfect as a DM, very good with both long & short passes & he’s presently available…


Why not tonali from brescia


Great player that we should’ve bought before he went Arsenal instead of Biglia. Doubt we’ll sign him now.


I agree. I wasn’t in favor of Milan signing Biglia due to his age and high salary especially knowing that Torreira was available at Sampdoria for less and he’s younger. Poor decision by Fassone and Mirabelli. Sigh!

I believe Milan will get Torriera though. I just hope we can also get Veretout, Ceballos and a good CB like Manolas to partner Romagnoli.

Ødegaard is a very good player that Milan should definitely get. He’s impressive and Giampaolo can really get the best out of him.


Stop playing FIFA there is no way arsenal will let torreira leave you guys always talk about the interview he granted were he complain it has been hard for him to adapt but you guys always forget the last part were he said it will get better with time


Anything is possible in football. Let’s see what happens until the transfer window closes.


AC Milan new coach Marco Giampaolo will promote Primavera starlet Matteo Gabbia to the first team. The defender reached the World Cup semi-final with Italy U20.
However, Matteo Gabbia will not be the only player of Milan Primavera to play with the first team. New coach Marco Giampaolo wants to test even Daniel Maldini (son of Paolo) and Leroy Abanda during pre-season preparations. A golden opportunity for the AC Milan youngsters.
news from…


Great news. Thanks for sharing


Latest report from Germany suggest United beat all of Kabak’s suitors and the player is on his way to England

If this is true I do hope Milan will not pursue Lovren instead


I’m on the fence about Ozan Kabak. The price is right but I prefer someone with more experience to partner Romagnoli like Manolas, Lovren or Thiago Silva who is playing really well for Brazil in the Copa America.


Romagnoli and kabak will be perfect kabak will collect the ball romagnoli is going to pass to the midfielders


Lovren is disaster he got so much mistakes + he is old for 20 millions


Man I hope this deal goes through. I’ve always admired torreira and he’s such a step up in quality. Also heard we’re linked to fekir. Man I wish that too. Those two playing in giampaolos setup would be lethal

Big Bad Bat

So what’s happening with this Sensi drama?
