Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira is set for talks with the club’s hierarchy after becoming frustrated with his role in the side, according to reports.
The 23-year-old has been on the fringes of Unai Emery’s team so far this season, being unable to complete a full 90 minutes in any of the side’s 11 Premier League games so far, while remaining on the bench for three of those.
Torreira’s lack of playing time has forced him to take action – according to Italian source TUTTOmercatoWEB – which says that the Uruguayan international will discuss the issue “in depth” in a meeting scheduled for next week.
The source adds that should Torreira not get the assurances he needs to be content with his role, he could look to forge a move away from the club in January.
AC Milan were heavily linked with a move for the midfielder during the summer and the Italian outlet claims that the club’s interest has not waned in him after former boss Marco Giampolo identified him as a potential signing.
Torreira has played 64 games for Arsenal in all competitions since his move from Sampdoria last summer, scoring four goals and assisting five others in that time.
