Four clubs are hoping to sign Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira in the coming weeks, according to reports. The 24-year-old is currently on loan at Atletico Madrid after seeing his game time reduced at the Emirates. There are rumours that Atletico want to terminate the loan, as it hasn’t been as successful as once hoped.
Valencia have made a second loan bid to sign Harry Winks from Tottenham. The struggling LaLiga side had their first bid rejected, amid claims from Jose Mourinho there was 'no chance' the central midfielder would leave. But journalist Guillem Balague claimed on Twitter that Valencia would make a second attempt to lure Winks to eastern Spain - though a deal at present looks unlikely.
Valencia ended an eight-game winless streak and moved further from the relegation zone with a 1-0 win at Valladolid in the Spanish league on Sunday. Carlos Soler scored in the 76th minute with a shot from outside the area to give Valencia its first league victory since a 4-1 rout of Real Madrid in November. Valencia had a late goal by Manu Vallejo disallowed after video review and Valladolid nearly equalized when substitute Sergi Guardiola hit the woodwork with a header in stoppage time.
