The protagonist of our column “The Poet of the Week” after the XNUMXrd matchday of Serie A is the midfielder of Fiorentina Lucas Torreira. The Uruguayan decided last Saturday’s match against Venezia with a melee heel strike near the goal line.
Torreira has recently become the true leader of the team led by Vincenzo Italian. With the goal against the Ligurians, he has reached five in this championship, equaling his personal best, obtained with the jersey of the Pescara in Serie B in the 2015/2016 season. After Dusan Vlahovic, which this year before moving to the Juventus scored 17 goals with the Viola, Torreira is the top scorer of his team. So far in this Serie A the Uruguayan midfielder with his goals has contributed to the conquest of 11 of Fiorentina’s 56 total points. The impressive figure, however, is the following: Torreira has achieved 5 goals out of 12 shots on target, so almost one shot out of two of the Uruguayan ends up in the net.
The midfielder born in 96 has therefore also become a goalscorer. In addition to masterfully playing the role of central midfielder, recovering many balls and completing many excellent passes, he too has learned to score continuously. The curiosity is that Torreira was an attacking midfielder at the beginning of his career, but his physique penalized him too much and therefore he was set back between Pescara and Sampdoria. He is now a complete midfielder, he knows how to do both phases and set the game. In addition to his outstanding technical skills, Torriera’s real strength lies in his character: he’s a great player claw, which gives everything for the shirt. TO San Siro against theInter, after receiving a hit in a game match, he pulled out a tooth and stayed on the pitch to fight for his team.
In Florence he seems to have found himself after the not too convincing experience atArsenal. Now Fiorentina is ready to pour into the coffers of Gunners 15 million euro to redeem it. The purple club wants to focus on Torreira also for the future and insert it even more into the project, because you can’t do without a warrior like him.
