Lack of money in football right now means we’re seeing a lot of loan transfers with mandatory purchase options, and that makes a lot of sense.
This gives the buying club a full season to get their finances to meet the amount, while this probably means that the selling club will receive a higher fee than the immediate sale.
This is an option that has little benefit to any side that needs to sell players to finance another transfer activity of its own, and this seems to be a problem for Lucas Torrera in leaving Arsenal. May be.

Recent reports from Spain suggest that Atletico Madrid were very interested, but Arsenal did not forget how determined they were when it came to negotiations with the Thomas party, so no deal seemed likely.
The report also indicated that the midfielder wanted to return to Serie A and that Torino had emerged as his favorite destination, but this move has since become impossible:
Torino sports director Vagnati confirmed that Arsenal are not accepting a loan from Torreira … At the moment: “Torrera is a top player but his price is too high. It is difficult for him to sign from Arsenal, not us.” Atalti also wants him on loan, # AFC Ask for permanent deals.

This seems like bad news for Arsenal if they are relying on selling Torreira for finance for the signing of any incoming midfielders, so obviously one side has to dramatically change their position here to complete the deal. Will need to be replaced.
