Midfielder Lucas Torreira has joined Turkish Super Lig side Galatasaray in a permanent transfer.
The Uruguayan international made 89 appearances for us after joining from Sampdoria in July 2018. He was part of our FA Cup final match-winning squad in 2020 and his goal in the 4-2 north London derby win at Emirates Stadium in November 2018 was a notable highlight during his first season with us.
Torreira spent the last two seasons away on loan in Spain and Italy. In 2020/21 he was with Atletico Madrid, where he made 19 league appearances in the team’s La Liga winning campaign.
The 26-year-old midfielder spent last season with Fiorentina, where he made 35 appearances in all competitions during his time with the Serie A side.
Everyone at Arsenal thanks Lucas for his contribution during his time with us. We wish Lucas and his family the best of health and happiness in their new chapter with Galatasaray.
The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
