Uruguayan professional footballer Lucas Torreira has completed a loan move to Atletico Madrid from Premier League side Arsenal for the rest of the 2020/21 League season.
Lack of active playing time this term at the Emirates stadium forced the 24-year-old player out of Arsenal for a move to the Spanish La Liga.
Lucas Torreira joined Arsenal from Sampdoria before the start of the 2018/19 Premier League season and was impressive for the Gunners.
His incredible performances last season also helped Arsenal to win the English FA Cup title beating Chelsea in the final.
Arsenal wished Lucas Torreira good luck while confirming the latest development about his transfer on their website.
The Gunners won't have much to miss about Lucas Torreira following the arrival of Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.
Partey was in brilliant form for Atletico Madrid last season which made Arsenal chiefs to go for his signature.
Torreira started his career at hometown club I.A. 18 de Julio of Fray Bentos.
In 2013, he joined Montevideo Wanderers' youth team before moving to Italy where he joined Pescara's youth team from where he moved to Sampdoria in 2015.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are occupying fourth position on the Premier League table with nine points after four games played this term.

Arsenal have drawn Manchester City in a game that will see Gunner’s manager Mikel Arteta square-up against his former boss at the Etihad Pep Guardiola as he was his assistant before he took the coaching role at the Emirates Stadium.
Arteta guided Arsenal to victory over Liverpool in the fourth-round via penalties after the game ended goalless as the Gunners now face the Citizens for a chance to reach the semis.
Recall that the Citizens were knocked out of last season's FA Cup semi-final by Arsenal on their way to winning the title and Arteta will be hoping for a repeat.
