Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira is said to be on the wishlist of Italian club for a potential January switch. The Uruguay midfielder had been linked with a move to Milan all summer but it is understood that the Gunners refused to sanction a transfer for the midfielder.

Torreira was signed from Sampdoria last season and turned out to be a revelation for the club last season. The 24-year-old is a sturdy midfielder with the ability to break down opposition attacks and create transition plays with his passing abilities.

It is understood that these qualities have endeared him to Milan whose CEO is former Gunners chief Ivan Gazidis. Torreira failed to start the first two matches for the club this season but played in the 2-2 draw for the club before the international break.

Milan have had a mixed season after their opening day defeat before winning by a single goal margin in their last game. The midfield looks devoid of a midfielder who is capable of breaking down attacks and recycling possession.

French ace TiemueyeBakayoko played the role last season to a large degree of success. However his personal troubles with former coach Gennaro Gattuso meant that the club failed to activate the buyout clause after his loan spell expired.

Meanwhile, Milan have also been linked with a move for Emre Can after the player voice his displeasure in being left out of the Champions League group stages by Juventus. Can is said to be pushing for a January exit and Milan are ready to move for the former Liverpool midfielder.

Can is an excellent midfielder who has been shunted out of the first-team reckoning at Juventus following the arrivals of AdrienRabiot and Aaron Ramsey in the summer. Milan has a target of making the top 4 this season and from the early indications it could be a long season for the Rossoneri.
