AC Milan could have to pay as much as £45million to sign Lucas Torreira from Arsenal this summer, reports say.

The 23-year-old only joined the Gunners from Sampdoria last summer, but reports refuse to go away suggesting he could be set for a sharp exit after failing to settle in London.

A return to Serie A with the Rossoneri has been suggested but he will not come cheap with Arsenal said to be holding out for a fee of £45million for the player.

Whether Milan will go that high remains to be seen, and there has also been talk of them switching targets, with Sassuolo midfielder Stefano Sensi also a target.

However, Arsenal will stand firm on their valuation as their boss Unai Emery needs to raise funds to make his own signings during the close season.

Torreira made 50 appearances for Arsenal last season, but it is thought that Emery is open to a sale if Milan pay enough.
