Fiorentina are expected to make Lucas Torreira’s loan from Arsenal permanent.

The Uruguayan midfielder has become a regular for Vincenzo Italiano’s side and has helped La Viola fight for a spot in Europe for the coming season. Torreira has made 28 appearances this season, amassing 5 goals and a single assist.

The 26-year-old has seemingly revitalized his career in Italy, where he previously played with Pescara and Sampdoria, after failing to make an impression with his London-based parent club and on loan at Atletico Madrid last season.

It is understood that Fiorentina have an option to buy on Torreira, and he seems destined to stay in Florence next season.

Torreira will still have a year remaining on his Arsenal contract if he returns to the Premier League this summer.
