Arsenal star Lucas Torreira is currently grieving following the death of his mother.

It's been gathered that the Uruguayan international lost his 58 years old mom due to Covid-19.

In an emotional interview with ESPN Argentina, Torreira who is currently on loan at Atletico Madrid, confirmed his mother had passed after a battle with COVID-19.

Torreira said:

“I am trying to understand the situation. It is difficult to come to terms with it but as time passes, we will come to live with this pain.


“My mother was 53 years old and died from Covid. There was an outbreak in Fray Bentos (Torreira’s hometown in Uruguay) and she spent 11 days fighting but on Monday morning I received the worst news."
The midfielder revealed that he's manager, Diego Simeone of Atletico Madrid has given some days off to see his family.

According to Torreira:
“I asked Atletico for some time off. Cholo (manager Diego Simeone) understood everything and they gave me a week, but I asked to stay for a little longer. On Sunday I will probably return. I have to do my duty and life must continue. Atletico have been very good to me and it’s important."

Lucas Torreira arrived Arsenal from Sampdoria back in 2018 and he's been sent on loan to Atletico Madrid where he has played 15 times scoring just once.

Following the death of his mother, the 25 years old Uruguayan has revealed his desire to move back to South America.

According to him, a move to Boca Juniors will be his dream in order to be close to his family.



He added:

“It’s not a violent emotion, a crazy decision because of my mother. I have always said that I want to play for Boca. I’m dying to play for Boca and I will always say it. The night my mother died, one of the first to hear the news was my agent. I don’t want to play in Europe anymore, I want to play for Boca.”


Meanwhile, his parent club Arsenal have showed their solidarity with a post on their verified Twitter handle.
