Lucas Torreira's desire and workrate has caught the eye for Arsenal supporters and neutrals alike.
The Uruguayan midfielder’s full-throttle style of play has already won him plenty of admirers, but the 22-year-old claims he knows no other way to play the game he loves.
"I am getting used to the Premier League style, a very physical and intense one," Torreira told Arsenal Player. "I am a very particular player. I like putting my life into every action, in every ball.
"I never save any energy and I always give my best until the end. My teammates understand my way and reciprocate by helping the team so we get things done.
"I come from another country, another life and another lifestyle. But I am a very normal guy, very natural. I am not keeping myself too busy after doing my work. I devote my time to training and improving as a footballer.
"I live with my girlfriend and sometimes we go and visit all the emblematic things in town. London is one of the most important cities in the world and I feel very happy here. I am adapting to many new things and I hope I can stay in London for a long time."
