And the Best…
15. Lucas Torreira (Sampdoria – Arsenal)
The wheels fell off the bus for Arsenal towards the tail end of the season as they missed out on Champion’s League qualification and then lost the Europa League final. However, the signing of Lucas Torreira was one of the few things that they definitely did do right.
The little Uruguayan is a real terrier of a player. Arsenal has lacked bite in midfield since Gilberto Silva left, and while Torreira isn’t on the Brazilian’s level yet, he’s still a real tenacious footballer with a lot of quality. He did falter in the last few games, but so did the whole clubs. Fans won’t be happy that he’s being heavily linked to AC Milan.
