Lucas Torreira has hinted he would be open to returning to Italy after just one season with Arsenal .
Torreira joined the Gunners from Sampdoria in a £26m deal last summer but faded after a bright start.
AC Milan are said to be keen on taking him back to Serie A before the start of next term with Torreira’s former manager Marco Giampaolo set to take over at the San Siro.
And Torreira has done little to dispel the speculation over a move away from the Emirates.
Asked about life in England, he told Uruguayan outlet Ovacion : “I don’t know if there are many things that I enjoy.
“I think it was better in Italy. England is a totally different world, a very large country.
“The language [barrier] has stopped me, to be able to relate with my teammates and with the people. It is very difficult when you can’t have dialogue.
“And so is the climate. You go out in the morning and it is cloudy, you arrive late to your home and it is cloudy.
“It is strange a little bit, the sun, the more of us that we are here and we are accustomed to having always or almost always the sun. But as the years pass, I’m going to be adapting.”
Torreira admitted the gruelling nature of the campaign took its toll as he made 50 appearances as Arsenal reached the final of the Europa League.
“I had to get used to playing every three days, which is very hard. There were many more matches,” he added.
“But for me, the balance was positive and I am satisfied and happy with what I did in the year.”
