Fiorentina have officially signed Lucas Torreira on loan from Arsenal with an option to buy for a total €16.5m.
The 25-year-old Uruguay international completed his medical yesterday and put pen to paper on the contract this afternoon.
It’s reported the cost of the operation is €1.5m for the one-season loan, with an option to make the move permanent for a further €15m.
This is a return to Serie A for Torreira, who spent most of his career in Italy, joining the Pescara youth team in January 2014 and going on through Sampdoria before his €28.65m move to Arsenal in 2018.
He never settled in England and spent last season with Atletico Madrid on loan.
