Arsenal coaches are against the idea of letting Lucas Torreira leave the club despite the player being out-of-favour under Mikel Arteta, according to Sky Sports.

The Uruguayan midfielder joined Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan deal at the start of the campaign, however, have struggled for game time.

Edu gave an interview last week claiming the club’s priority concern is the player and his happiness as he talked about his disastrous spell in the Spanish capital.

Should Arsenal have sacked Mikel Arteta and hired Nuno Espirito Santo?

Yes

No

No

Harmony seems to be a distant thing in north London and this news story confirms that it’s not just between players and manager. There have been plenty of stories about how Mikel Arteta has fallen out with a number of players including the likes of Mesut Ozil and Matteo Guendouzi.

However, to be disagreeing with your coaches proves to be a unique thing especially in the current climate where coaches bring in their own staff to help at the start of their regime.

Having different ideas within a group of coaches over how the club should be run isn’t an ideal scenario especially as the club need to collectively come together and qualify for the Champions League. It’s a competition the club of Arsenal’s size needs to be in after four years away from it.

Why there are controversies over one player, we’ll never know. There should never be disharmony over anything if you want to achieve your goals and this latest disagreement isn’t ideal.

In other news, one Arsenal figure is under pressure ahead of the end of the January window.
