Press conference

Arteta on... the latest transfer speculation

With a little over a week until the transfer window shuts, it was no surprise that Mikel Arteta had to field a series of questions about it on Friday.

This is what our manager told the press about the latest speculation regarding incomings and outgoings:
on the latest on Lucas Torreira…
No, we don’t have any updates on Lucas or any other player at the moment.
on being linked with Jorginho at Chelsea…
We are still open to improve our team, we are looking for different options depending on what happens with some of our players here so we are getting prepared just in case we need to do something.
on what potential qualities he sees in Jorginho...
Sorry, but I cannot talk about players that play for a different team. [Discussing] their qualities is not appropriate from my side.
on whether he tried to sign Thiago...
We don't discuss the things that we try to do in the market.

on whether he's a player he admires...
Yeah, I really like him from my time that I was in Barcelona as well. A player with incredible personality, great talent, very special qualities to play in midfield. I think he's a great signing for Liverpool.
