Lucas Torreira admits he’s flattered by Arsenal fans comparing him to Patrick Vieira.
The Uruguay international was signed for 26.5 million from Sampdoria this summer and has made a swift impact in central midfield under Unai Emery.
Torreira already looks set to key a key part of Arsenal’s resurgence as the Gunners have yet to lose with him in the team.
And Arsenal supporters are likening their summer signing to one of their greatest-ever players.
‘If the fans are comparing me and my game to Patrick Vieira, that’s amazing. It makes me very proud but I need to grow a bit before I can be as tall as him!’ Torreira told Sky Sports.
