Torreira left Arsenal to join Atletico Madrid on loan in the recent window and the Spanish giants have an option to make the move permanent next year.


The midfielder has suitors in Italy, particularly Torino, where his former Sampdoria coach Marco Giampaolo wanted him in the summer.



Torino failed to work out an agreement but the Serie A outfit have not given up on the prospect of signing Torreira.


And according to Turin-based Italian daily Tuttosport, Torino are planning a complicated operation that would see Atletico Madrid agreeing to cut short his loan and send him back to Arsenal in January before Torino sign him.



The Serie A side are preparing to hold talks with the player’s entourage and promise him a starring role Giampaolo’s team going forward.


While Torreira has been keen on working with his former Sampdoria coach again and he could agree to the move, the challenge lies in convincing Atletico Madrid and Arsenal to agree to a deal.



He has started two of four La Liga games for Atletico Madrid and is a key part of Diego Simeone’s plans.


Torino will likely face an uphill task in convincing Atletico Madrid to agree to cut short the midfielder’s loan in January apart from working out an agreement with Arsenal as well.
