Everyone loves a good social media transfer hint don’t they?

You get the feeling that the players know exactly what they are doing when they do this sort of thing, but it is still an exciting thing for fans to talk about.

So step forward Lucas Torreira…

The Uruguay international midfielder has emerged as an Arsenal target in the last few days, with new boss Unai Emery tipped to make him his next addition after moves for Stephan Lichtsteiner and the soon-to-be completed switch for Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

And have been monitoring the Sampdoria man’s Instagram activity.

The 22-year-old, who will be in action for his country at the World Cup this summer, has starred in Serie A in recent seasons and negotiations are said to be underway – even though he has a €25 million release clause – over a differently structured deal.

Several other clubs are believed to be monitoring the defensive midfielder, including Borussia Dortmund and Napoli, but Torreira appears to have hinted at moving to the Emirates.

Judging by his recent activity on Instagram, the Uruguayan has followed both the Arsenal account as well as Mesut Ozil’s.
