Arsenal open talks with Orlando City over striker Facundo Torres. Facundo Torres may be transferred by Arsenal during the current winter transfer window after discussions with Orlando City.
The Gunners have long admired the Uruguayan talent and are willing to sign the 22-year-old after falling short of acquiring Mykhailo Mudryk from Chelsea.
According to rumors, the Arsenal coaching staff views Torres as a possible Bukayo Saka backup who has a lot of promise.
I was informed by Orlando City that there had been communication with Arsenal, but I departed for the World Cup at that moment and didn’t want to learn about a prospective trade, Torres said to 90min.
We’ll see where the topic goes now that I’m back with the team, so the chat ended there.
I would really like to play in Europe, he continued. I’ve dreamed of it ever since I was young. I’m now concentrating on Orlando City. But the speculations are coming from La Liga or the Premier League, which would be my goals. But I would adore that, definitely.
Torres is one of Orlando City’s main players after helping the team win the US Open Cup in 2022.
He made a club-record transfer from Penarol to the team in January of last year, and it didn’t take him long to get used to MLS, contributing nine goals and 10 assists in 33 games.
