Arsenal are lining up a winter move for Orlando City winger Facundo Torres. Uruguay international has emerged on the Spanish manager’s shortlist among other targets, with the London giants’ scout Toni Lima’s extensive scouting of the attacker.

The Gunners are keen on reinforcing their squad with quality footballers ahead of the winter transfer window. Mikel Arteta has steered the squad to the summit of the PL table and will need support to back a probable title challenge in the coming months.

 

The Spanish manager has already addressed the concerns in the squad, particularly with the depth in quality. The Gunners tried to bring in a few wingers in the summer as covers for Saka and Martinelli. The former’s position is considered pressing, and the London giants might enter the market this winter.

Hence, there are new links over a potential winter move with another footballer in Facundo. The Gunners supporters will remember Torres from the pre-season tour of the USA. Having joined Orlando City in a big move last winter, the 22-year-old attacker has become a fan favourite at the MLS club.

The Uruguayan attacker also scored with Arsenal in the pre-season. And the Gunners have kept a watch on the South American forward’s progress. The Gunners could accelerate negotiations with Orlando City and try to agree with the MLS side and the Uruguayan’s representatives.

Facundo Torres may not be of optimal quality, unlike Pino or Mudryk. But the 22-year-old South American forward has the attributes to succeed at a big club like the Gunners.
