Spanish club Atletico Madrid is set to cancel Lucas Torreira’s loan deal with the club.

The Uruguayan international midfielder joined Atletico Madrid from Arsenal on a loan till the end of the current season with an option to buy.

However According to reports from Spanish news outlet @TuttoMercatoWeb, Atletico is set to cancel the loan deal prematurely as they have not been impressed by the player’s performance since joining the club.

Torriera has failed to nail a starting spot in Atletico’s midfield and has only been limited to substitute appearances since joining Diego Simieone’s side at the start of the campaign. He was an unused substitute in Atletico’s 2 – 0 lost to City rivals Real Madrid in the Madrid’s derby clash last weekend.
