LUCAS TORREIRA has looked set for a switch to Arsenal – but a could deal end up NOT going through?
Torreira is currently at the World Cup with Uruguay and had been expected to return from the tournament as an Arsenal player.
But no deal has yet been announced for the midfield man, despite claims from his current club Sampdoria that the transfer is on.
However Spanish reporter Kike Marin has suggested all may not be as it seems.
In an exchange on Twitter with Arsenal fans, Marin hinted the Gunners may have done a U-turn over the Torreira deal.\
He wrote on Twitter: Lucas Vázquez #Arsenal? Nothing at all!!”
Instead of fans questioning him on the link with Real Madrid and Spain star Vazquez, he was swamped with requests for updates on Torreira and another potential deal for Sevilla and Argentina man Ever Banega.
Another account replied: “Torreira is all but done.”
Marin then dropped his bombshell claim, writing: “I’m not sure…”
“It is done.” replied the account from above.
To which Marin added: “I also believed it, but…”
Arsenal fans could get another glimpse of Torreira in action when Uruguay take on Portugal in the World Cup last 16 on Saturday.
