I don’t know what can happen in the future,’ said Bentancur.However, Emery has dismissed the chances of Torreira leaving and says the midfielder has a ‘big future’ at Arsenal, providing he can improve.ADVERTISEMENT Torreira’s made just four league starts this term (Picture: Getty)‘I spoke with him yesterday and today. I showed him some movies about his best performances with us and how he can improve,’ said Emery.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘First, he is young. His process here is starting. He started playing in the Premier League last year and he progressed, but this year again he needs to progress.‘He is a very good player, important for us, and his focus needs to be with us 100 per cent. His response to me was positive, this morning and yesterday, and then we showed how he can improve for our capacity of our necessary tactical movement.‘He’s a good player for us, he has very big commitment and very good behaviour.

He’s tenacious,’ said Keown.‘The Chelsea game at home, the Liverpool game at home last season, he was playing in that team and Arsenal looked better for it.‘This is why I think the fans went against Emery because Xhaka played no matter what when Torreira had to sit on the bench. Ceballos plays one game for Arsenal [against Burnley] and was absolutely brilliant but he’s back on the bench. Maybe it’s Xhaka he needs to take out.’MORE: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette will leave if Arsenal don’t improve, warns Martin Keown Advertisement Advertisement Metro Sport ReporterFriday 22 Nov 2019 11:26 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link260Shares Commentlast_img read more
