Midfielder ‘scared’ about Arsenal move, admits Father

Arsenal top transfer target Lucas Torreira is worried about his proposed move to London, his father has admitted.

The Sampdoria midfielder, who is currently on international duty with Uruguay, is nearing a £27m move to the Emirates this summer, with new manger Unai Emery wanting to add more strength in the middle.

The 22-year-old has been impressive for the Serie A side, as well as his country, exciting Gunners’ fans about his imminent arrival.

However, his father Ricardo has revealed that the youngster is scared ahead of his move to England.

“There will be people that will accompany him,” he told Teledoce.

“He won’t be alone. It’s a big change [going to England] and we don’t want to think about it yet because we’re scared.

“The truth is it’s tough to manage the language, adapt to the [London] society and customs and at the same time not lose ours.

“But there’s a whole programme getting readied for Lucas.”

Should the Uruguayan make the move to North London this summer, it is vitally important that the Spanish players amongst the Arsenal squad help the midfielder to settle in as soon as possible.
