Arsenal star Lucas Torreira has revealed he plans to leave the Gunners in the future to move to South American giants Boca Juniors.
The Uruguayan international joined Arsenal last summer from Sampdoria for a fee in the region of £26million and has caught the eye in his first campaign in the Premier League.
Born in Fray Bentos, Uruguay, the midfielder was speaking this week about future career plans and the topic of Boca Juniors arose.

ARSENAL MOVE FOR MAN UTD TARGET
Arsenal are ready to meet the £31m release clause of Roma defender Kostas Manolas in order to sign him this summer, a report claims.
Unai Emery is expected to try and reinforce his back line this summer, and Manolas could prove to be a good value-for-money option.
This is thanks to the €36m release clause in his contract, which – despite doubts over how much budget Arsenal will have – seems like a bargain price.
