The Spanish giants will sign him on loan with an option to make the move permanent next summer. The Gunners and Atletico have completed negotiations and exchanged all the required documentation for this move to go through. Atletico need to sell one player before confirming the signing of the Uruguay international.
It is understood that the player who is most likely to exit the club is Hector Herrera but there are other members of Simeone’s side who could depart. Nikolo Kalinic and Thomas Lemar are surplus to requirements and could exit the club. Mario Hermoso is another player who could leave ahead of the deadline.
One player, who is of specific interest to Arsenal fans, who could leave Atletico is Thomas Partey. The Spanish side do not want to lose the Ghanaian midfielder and have rejected all offers received for his services so far but if the player’s £45 million release clause is triggered, they will be unable to block his departure. As things stand, they will continue to try their best to keep him at the club.
If Atletico fail to sell one of their existing players, they will pull the plug on the transfer of Lucas Torreira.
