The Lupi are in the midst of a change of ownership but rumors are linking Torreira to Roma. The midfielder may be willing to change for more playing time.
Recently, rumors of a possible swap deal Diawara-Torreira broke out and this possibility may be very good for both clubs. Although Paulo Fonseca played Amadou Diawara consistently this season, Lucas Torreira‘s ability in front of the backline may recall the marvelous gestures of the beloved David Pizarro.
The Lupi have been looking for a great director of the orchestra since the departure of the Chilean playmaker and albeit the Guinean is potentially a very good player, the Uruguayan midfielder already has experience in Serie A having shown his immense quality at Sampdoria.

Torreira-Veretout may form a competitive duo in midfield next season. The British side and the Giallorossi have negotiated and finalized Mkhitaryan‘s deal recently and they may be ready to do business together again.
