Arsenal news: Lucas Torreira reveals ONE thing he loves about his new club | Football | Sport
Torreira joined Arsenal from Sampdoria in the summer for a fee of around £26million.
The combative midfielder is yet to taste defeat when he has started for the Gunners and already earned rave reviews early in his Premier League career.
And despite it being the international break, Torreira will be playing at the Emirates on Friday when his Uruguay side face Brazil in a friendly.
The 22-year-old has been telling his international team-mates about how much he loves his new home ground.
“When I heard the game against Brazil was going to be in ‘our house’ I was very happy because I know it well and it’s a ground that fits the occasion,” Torreira told Hayters.
“It’s a fantastic stadium, an awesome ground with a big capacity.
“My team-mates were asking me ‘how is the stadium?’ and wanted me to tell them a little bit about what it’s like because I play there every week.
“It will be a big match and lots of fans will be able to watch.
“So it should be fun and a great spectacle.”
Torreira starred for Uruguay in their run to the World Cup quarter-finals in the summer.
And he is looking forward to pulling on the shirt of La Celeste later this week.
“It will be an awesome game,” Torreira continued.
“It’s a friendly but it’s still such an important game.
“Every time you pull on your national team’s jersey you are giving it all your strength and taking it seriously.
“We had a tour of Asia recently where results didn’t go our way but the important thing is that the team looks good and it feels like we are continuing to grow.
“We’ve got to maintain our claim as product of the coach and shows the growth of this team.
“And at this point in time, the clash with Brazil should be a great match.”
