'Torreira ticks all the boxes' - Arsenal fans can't get enough of midfielder

9th Dec 2018

Lucas Torreira has only been an Arsenal player for a matter of months, but he has firmly established himself as a fan favourite.

The Uruguay international represents what Gunners fans have been crying out for for years; a bit of bite and tenacity in the centre of the park.

However, to label the 22-year-old as little more than a destroyer would be unfair. His measured finish in the north London derby and spectacular strike against Huddersfield prove that he's handy in the final third too.

Gunners fans are completely taken with their new midfielder, who is widely being seen as the signing of the season, such is the manner in which he has adapted to life in the Premier League.

Unai Emery's men are unbeaten in 21 games and supporters believe that Torreira's form is a key reason behind their rise to fifth place in the table.

He's even got his own song - to the tune of Patrick Vieira's old chant. Praise doesn't come much higher than that.
