Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed that he is very happy with his £26 million summer signing from Sampdoria, Lucas Torreira.
The Uruguay international midfielder has impressed after coming on as a substitute in all three of the Gunners opening Premier League fixtures, with many Arsenal fans demanding that he be given a starting role in Emery’s side.
“I am very happy with the player. The players are working hard every day and making demands of me to start with their work rate.” Emery told the press ahead of his side’s trip to Cardiff on Sunday.
“The possibility of him playing with the starting XI is okay, but I am happy with all of the players and how they are working, not just Lucas.”
Torreira himself recently revealed that he is settling in well to life at the Emirates.
