Transfer: Unai Emery told to sell three Arsenal players

But the 23-year-old was not always guaranteed a starting spot towards the end of the campaign and reflecting on his first year in England recently, Torreira dropped a major hint that he is unsettled.

And this statement comes just days after Lucas Torriera had told Uruguayan outlet Ovacion (as reported) that he is not too happy with life in England.

"I know nothing about the Rossoneri's interest, no one contacted me", he said (as reported by Goal). It is very hard when you can't have dialogue. And rumours have it that the midfielder too is keen to play under his former boss as he eyes a move back to Italy. Would [Marco] Giampaolo's call be something special for Lucas? You go out in the morning and it is cloudy; you arrive late to your home and it is cloudy. "But as the years pass, I'm going to be adapting".

David Ospina was on loan at Napoli last season but he isn't in Unai Emery's plans and so he will also be sold in this transfer window to boost Arsenal's transfer budget.

It appears, then, that Serie A side Napoli have now joined the chase for the defender and it could well mean that the race for him is going to intensify.

Ljungberg has impressed in his work with the Under-23s, having helped to bring through a talented crop of young players.

Former Arsenal star, Charlie Nicholas, has urged Unai Emery to sell three players, before bolstering his defensive options this summer.

The former Arsenal forward says the club should listen to offers for midfielders Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, whilst he believes Uruguay global Lucas Torreira should also be allowed to leave, with the 23-year-old interested in a return to Italy.

"But come on, start moving on".
