Valencia have made an approach to Arsenal over a loan deal for Lucas Torreira, according to reports in Spain.

The Uruguay international joined Atletico Madrid on loan in October but has struggled to secure a regular role in Diego Simeone’s side.

Torreira has started just two games in La Liga since making the move to Atletico and has only played 420 minutes of football in all competitions so far.

According to AS, Valencia are keen on signing Torreira and the Spanish club are currently in talks with Arsenal’s technical director Edu over a loan deal.

The report claims that Sevilla have also expressed their interest, while Arsenal are ‘worried’ about the little amount of playing time Torreira has been given at Atletico.

Earlier this month, reports in Spain claimed that Arsenal were unhappy with Atletico’s handling of Torreira as they believe the Spanish club are deliberately trying to reduce the midfielder’s valuation as a purchase option was not included as part of the loan deal.
