Lucas Torreira has admitted he may consider leaving Arsenal after one year should an opportunity to return to Italy appears in the summer
The Uruguay international arrived at the Emirates Stadium from Sampdoria last summer for £26.4m and has quickly become a regular starter under Unai Emery.
Although he has collected 50 top-flight outings for the Gunners last term, the 23-year-old midfielder has not enjoyed his life in England.
Torreira seemed nostalgic when talking about his feelings for Italy, while indicating it may take him a while to adapt to England.
“I don’t know if there are many things that I enjoy. I think it was better in Italy. England is a totally different world, a very large country.

“The language has stopped me, to be able to relate with my teammates 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.”
AC Milan have recently expressed interest in Torreira, as the former Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis looks to bring the player back to Serie A.
