The gunners will begin their Europa League and Carabao Cup campaigns this month and this will be a perfect opportunity for Lucas Torreira to impress Unai Emery more since he will finally play the full 90 minutes but him getting to the starting eleven will be delayed if he is ruled out for some weeks if the injury was severe.
Lucas Torreira will be hoping to recover before Arsenal’s match against Newcastle United because it’s believed that Unai Emery will finally honour the wish of Arsenal fans and include the Uruguayan international in the starting eleven.
