It was supposed to keep him out of action for the rest of the campaign before the season was ground to a halt over the coronavirus pandemic.
And while he hasn’t had the support of Arsenal’s medical staff in lockdown, Torreira appears to have worked tirelessly to retain his fitness.
Taking to Twitter, Torreira showed off his bulging muscles including his six-pack.
Alongside his three Man of the Match awards and an image of Walter White in the award-winning series Breaking Bad, he wrote the caption: “I’m back.”
The news will come as a huge boost to Arsenal fans and boss Mikel Arteta with Torreira able to add much-needed steel in Arsenal’s midfield.
The Gunners will need to waste no time in finding their form if they want to qualify for Europe next campaign.
With the season set to commence next month, they sit eight points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with a game advantage.
It could be Torreira’s last involvement in an Arsenal shirt after his agent admitted he is lining up a move to Italy following a fallout with Arteta.
Pablo Bentancur, told Tuttomercato: “Lucas had been in a bit of a bad mood over some technical differences, then he recovered. And the injury arrived, fortunately less serious than expected.
“Today he is completely recovered, I believe he will be a market man.
“I will have to speak to Arsenal. The player would love to return to Italy, but it must be acknowledged that Arsenal treated him very well and behaved great.”
Torreira has received mixed reviews after arriving at the Emirates in 2018 for £26million from Sampdoria.
