Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to demand that the club's new Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira be promoted to Arsenal's starting XI. 

Since signing from Sampdoria for £22m in the summer, Torreira is yet to start for Unai Emery's side. The Uruguayan has came off the bench in each four of Arsenal's Premier League games so far this season, as Emery continues to start Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi in midfield.

Torreira's latest substitution appearance came in Arsenal's 3-2 win over Cardiff. He replaced Guendouzi with 20 minutes left in the game and his defensive displays in the midfield helped free Arsenal's attack to push for their eventual 81st minute winning goal, which the Uruguayan assisted for Lacazette. 


Torreira's four cameos have left a positive impression on Arsenal fans that was clear to see by their reaction on Twitter following the 22-year-old's performance against Cardiff. 





Arsenal fans are itching for Emery to start Torreira, but the manager was quoted on Team Talk explaining why the midfielder is yet to start for Arsenal: “[Torreira is] improving. He is getting to know his teammates. For me, all the minutes he is playing is important for his performance. 


“He needs to continue working. But it’s very important for me to think about others players, Matteo has started well and Xhaka is very important.

“We need good players. Lucas is like that.”

When the Premier League reconvenes after the international break Arsenal will face Newcastle. Clearly Arsenal fans are hoping Emery finally gives Torreira the start they believe he deserves.
