Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has said that he would like to play for Boca Juniors while he is still in his prime.

Torreira fractured his ankle in March in Arsenal’s FA Cup tie against Portsmouth, however, the suspension of the Premier League due to the coronavirus pandemic has given the Uruguayan time to get back to fitness.

The midfielder has not managed to secure a starting role under Mikel Arteta and has been linked with a return to Italy, but while he is happy at the club right now he admits it would be a dream to play for the club he supports, Boca.

He told Fox Sports Argentina: “I imagine a Copa Libertadores night at the Bombonera wearing Boca’s shirt, of course. ‘Right now my head is in Europe and I was to stay for a while, but I have that desire and dream to go [to Boca] – and not just to retire, but to compete and feel what the Boca world is.”

When asked about on how he developed such an affinity for the club, Torreira explained: “My family is big soccer fans and we Uruguayans watch a lot of Argentine football. It is one of the most important in South America, very passionate, so from a very young age this affection, this love for Boca was born.

“I had to go to the Madrid final [where River Plate beat Boca] and when the game ended I thought I wasn’t going to be so mad but I was very sad, for the defeat and for how the game had been.

“It was the time I got to see Boca as a fan. It is true that I have great affection for the club and hopefully it will be forever. In Fray Bentos, I have many friends who are fans of Boca.”
