Lucas Torreira looks set to be the latest name out of the door at Arsenal as Mikel Arteta’s clear-out gathers pace.

The Uruguay midfielder is close to joining Fiorentina for a £7m loan fee, with a £14m obligation to buy next summer.

Arsenal have already terminated the contract of Henrikh Mkhitaryan to allow him to join Roma.

But Arteta needs to sell to buy - with £50m-rated Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey still a target.

Defender Sokratis is edging closer to a move to Napoli, with the 32-year-old set to sign a three-year contract.

And the club are also listening to offers for Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, Mo Elneny, Sead Kolasinac and Matteo Guendouzi in a bid to raise funds.

Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos will rejoin the Gunners on loan in the next few days - but the club are now prioritising sales.

Torreira cost Arsenal £26m when they signed him from Sampdoria in the summer of 2018 and he still has three years left on his contract.

But the 24-year-old hardly featured towards the end of last season and is surplus to requirements as Arteta tries to reshape his squad.

Torreira recently admitted that his Emirates future was in doubt with AC Milan having previously been linked with a move.

“Today I need to think about my future very well,” he told Sport890 .

“I have a contract with the club and I have to respect it, obviously if I have to leave it will be for the best. We have to be calm and wait."

Arsenal have made two signings so far this summer, bringing Willian and Gabriel to the Emirates.
