Torreira unhappy with position change

English Premier League

The agent of Arsenal star Lucas Torreira has revealed his client is unhappy with one aspect under manager Unai Emery this season.

Torreira impressed for the Gunners last season following his move from Serie A outfit Sampdoria in 2018.

However, the Uruguay international has not featured as prominently this term and has been forced to play further up the pitch, which his agent reveals the midfielder is not happy with.

"Anything is possible in football," Bentancur told Radio Marte.

"Torreira is happy at Arsenal, although the change in role has not made him happy. It must be said that this year the whole team is not doing well. But I believe Arsenal wants to keep him."

On his lack of game-time, Bentancur added, "I don’t know whether I’d say it’s frustrating.

"All players want to play, they obviously want to be in the starting XI – that’s completely normal.

"But that’s not something that depends on me. It’s down to the coach to make those decisions and really I have to respect that. Right now it’s about not giving up.

"You have to continue working hard and whether I’m playing in the starting XI or from the bench I want to give my all for the team."
