Arsenal signed Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria in the 2018 summer transfer window and the Uruguayan international is among their top performing players this season because he has been great in the defensive midfield role yet his predecessors failed to impress in it.
Lucas Torreira has helped the gunners stabilize their midfield because he is always there tackling opponents to stop attacks, starting attacking moves and the Arsenal fans have even nicknamed him “THE WHITE KANTE” because his playing style is like that of the Chelsea midfielder.
Even though Lucas Torreira is well-known for protecting the defence but he is also good at keeping the ball and at times makes runs into the opposition half but he doesn’t easily lose the ball unless when fouled. A list of the most fouled players in the Premier League has been released by the Mirror and, Lucas Torreira is the most fouled Arsenal player.
MOST FOULED PLAYERS IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE
1. Wilfried Zaha – 32
2. Eden Hazard – 31
3. Will Hughes – 29
3. James Maddison – 29
5. Lucas Torreira – 28
It is quite surprising that Lucas Torreira, a defensive midfielder is the most fouled Arsenal player in the Premier League yet the gunners have many attacking players but maybe because they are probably stronger than the Uruguayan international.
