Arsenal star Lucas Torreira has already decided on his next club ahead of this summer.
But that will suit Torreira, who has already decided he wants to spend another season away from Arsenal, but not with Atletico Madrid.
Instead, the Uruguayan wants to return to South America to link up with Argentine giants Bocas Juniors, a move that would be inspired by the passing of his mother.
“I’m dying to play in Boca. If not now, in June or later. When my mother passed away, I told my agent that I don’t want to play in Europe anymore, and I want to go to Boca,” he told ESPN Argentina.
“Hopefully the teams will agree a loan for a year. Because I don’t know how many millions I’m worth, but for Boca it’s a lot of money.”
Arsenal paid as much as £27million to sign Torreira from Sampdoria in 2018, and he has made 63 Premier League appearances since, scoring three times from midfield.
The 25-year-old is under contract with the Gunners until 2023, meaning it might be hard for Arsenal to grant his Boca Juniors wish, or at least on a permanent basis.

Though, as Torreira eludes to, there could be the option of another loan, depending on whether Arsenal would be happy to loan him out again having spent so much to sign him initially.
Still only 25, Arsenal will want to reclaim money from Torreira if they have seen the last of him, though a good loan fee and a large contribution towards the midfielder’s wages could sway them.
