ARSENAL boss ARTETA on loanee playmaker TORREIRA: "It's no time to make abrupt decisions"
translated by Claudio Colla
Addressed with 25-year old Uruguayan deep-lying midfielder Lucas Torreira having said he's going to join Boca Juniors, once current season's over, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta stated: "Of course we talked to him, afterwards. We know he's having a hard time, because of his mother's departure. That's the kind of moment during which you go through a lot, of course. He needs to think things over, it's no time to make abrupt decisions". Fending for Atletico Madrid as a loanee, former Sampdoria playmaker is still on a parent-club deal with Gunners until June 2023.
