Arsenal are said to hold concerns over Torreira’s lack of minutes in LaLiga and AS claimed that sporting director Edu has been contacted by Valencia.

Torreira has made just 13 appearances in all competitions this season and his short-term future remains uncertain.

Valencia initially targeted a move for Winks but their advances were snubbed by Tottenham.

Winks’ contract with the north London club is set to run down in 2024 and the England international has openly spoken about his limited playing time.

But Jose Mourinho has been firm over his stance in refusing to allow Winks to leave.

When questioned about the speculation surrounding the 24-year-old, the Tottenham boss laughed and put an end to the matter.

He said: ‘What do I have to say to stop with this talk? I said already that he’s going nowhere. When I say he’s going nowhere, what more do you want me to say?

‘He played the last matches. He didn’t play the last one because it was a chance to let players like Gedson [Fernandes] get minutes. 

‘If someone’s talking to other clubs, I’d say don’t waste your time.’
