According to Sportitalia, Torreira has told Arsenal’s hierarchy that he is unhappy in England and wants to return to Serie A with AC Milan.

Earlier this month, Torreira indicated that he was struggling to adjust to life in England and hinted that he would be open to returning to Serie A. “I think it was better in Italy. England is a totally different world, a very large country,” said Torreira.

“The language [barrier] has cost me, to be able to relate with my peers and with the people. It is very difficult when you can’t have dialogue. “And so is the climate. You go out in the morning and it is cloudy, you arrive late to your home and it is cloudy. It is strange a little bit, the sun, the more of us that we are here and we are accustomed to having always or almost always the sun. But as the years pass, I’m going to be adapting.”
