Torreira could potentially be delaying a move for Youri Tielemans. Arsenal are expected to sign one or two more players before the end of the transfer window with Mikel Arteta keen on strengthening his squad.
Tielemans has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates this summer with some reports suggesting personal terms have been agreed.
The plan is to offload as many fringe players to fund a move for the Leicester City midfielder. Bernd Leno has joined Fulham while Hector Bellerin, Pablo Mari and Lucas Torreira are all on the transfer list.
A move for Tielemans is on the cards with Leicester asking for £25-30m, Arteta is also keen on signing a winger.
However, a move for a winger will likely happen once underwhelming record signing Nicolas Pepe is sold.
