The Uruguay international footballer is having the time of his life with Arsenal in the English Premier League.

Defensive midfielder Lucas Torreira joined Arsenal this summer, after playing with Sampdoria in the Italian Lega A.

And the 22-year-old is feeling really well in the English Premier League.

“I think the most important thing for me is hard work and that day-to-day learning,” he said to the club’s official website.

“I’m part of a squad that has got some stars within it, people who have achieved a lot throughout their entire careers.”

“I’m very young but I’m obviously within that squad and able to learn as a result of that. For me, I’m the kind of person who really likes to work hard,” he added.

“I like dedicating a lot of time to what I love most, which is football. Then when I’m on the pitch, I try to give 100 percent and try to help the team in various aspects.”

“I’m really motivated to be a part of this team and I want to continue growing as part of this squad, which I think is a very good one,” he commented.

“It’s incredible really to be able to be in the same squad as a player like Mesut Ozil and obviously other players too, players that have achieved a lot and have great quality. It makes me proud.”
