Arsenal star, Lucas Torreira has told the club that he does not want to return to the Emirates this summer.
The Uruguay international wants to remain at Italian side, Fiorentina, where he spent the just concluded season on loan and has established himself as a key player.
But earlier this month the midfielder’s agent, Pablo Bentancur, said the Gunners have rejected the Italian club’s attempt to lower the €15 million (£12.6m) right-to-buy option.
The Uruguayan, meanwhile, has now made it clear that he wants Fiorentina to reach an agreement with Arsenal.
“My intention is to stay at Fiorentina,” Torreira told FanPage in Italy.
“But it will be necessary for the club to find an agreement with Arsenal. I’m perfectly fine in Florence. I am fine in Italy.
“It was a very positive year, even if we failed to qualify for Europa League.
“Personally, I felt very loved by the teammates and fans.”
