The Arsenal midfielder has fuelled reports of him moving to AC Milan, as he struggles with life in England and likes Italy.

Arsenal and Uruguay international midfielder Lucas Torreira has fuelled transfer speculations today after he admitted he’s having a hard time living in England.

And not only that, but he also said he would like living in Italy.

“I don’t know if there’s a lot of things that I’m enjoying because I think I liked living in Italy more,” he told reporters according to Goal.

“London is a completely different world. England is a very big country.”

“I had trouble with the language, communicating with my team-mates and with the people.”

He explained: “It’s pretty rough in certain moments when you can’t have any dialogue, that’s the most important part.”

“The weather is also difficult.”

“You go out in the morning and it’s cloudy and you get back after training and it’s still cloudy,” he commented.

“I miss the sun. Mostly us South Americans are used to having sunny days. But I think I’ll get used to it as the years go by.”
