As Atletico Madrid seemingly has a big arrival joining a big departure, and perhaps more, while other clubs aren’t avoiding the transfer waltz this pre-World Cup Tuesday in June.

Along with the above linked news regarding Antoine Griezmann and Thomas Lemar, Atletico may be selling 27-year-old defender Stefan Savic.

The Montenegro center back is said to be interesting both Chelsea and Juventus, with a price tag of at least $47 million being bandied about the Internet.

Arsenal supporters may want to keep an extra close eye on Uruguay at this summer’s World Cup, as a future Gunner may be plying his trade underneath Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.

Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira is reportedly talking with the Emirates Stadium outfit. The 22-year-old is said to carry an approximate price tag of $35 million.

Torreira can play box-to-box or sit further back in the midfield, though he sits behind Juventus’ Rodrigo Bentacur on the Uruguayan depth chart. He chewed up nearly 3200 minutes for Sampdoria last season, scoring four goals and adding an assist with 2.8 tackles and 2 interceptions per match.
