According to the Evening Standard, Arsenal are considering a January move for Torres, who has impressed in MLS this season, scoring nine goals and claiming ten assists. The Gunners are due to hold talks with the Uruguay international’s agent as they target a right winger to provide competition for Saka, who picked up an ankle injury during the 5-0 win against Nottingham Forest on Sunday afternoon.

 

 

Torres played and scored against Arsenal in a pre-season friendly during the Gunners’ pre-season tour of America in the summer and only moved to Orlando in January. The 22-year-old left Uruguayan side Penarol for around £7.75million, signing a four-year contract with the option for a further 12 months.
