    Arteta expressed sympathy for Torreira’s plight, stressing that any decision would have to suit all parties involved.

    “We have contacted him, we have spoken to him we know how much of a difficult time this is for him. He was really attached to his Mum and with his family and it’s a hard time for him emotionally,” Arteta told reporters.
