It is no surprise that Arsenal are looking to buy players this summer. And with the World Cup on the horizon, the deals have to be completed as quick as possible.
The club cannot risk a player they are targeting to have a great tournament and subsequently see his price go up.
One player that the Gunners really want is Sampdoria’s midfielder Lucas Torreira. The Uruguayan has been earmarked as the center midfielder that will complement the playing style of new manager Unai Emery.
That deal seems to be done with Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano confirming it. This is a very encouraging sign as Romano is someone who has established his reliability when it comes to transfers.
When the Sky Sports journalist was asked about the deal by a fan, he replied:
“[Torreira] is done mate! But I don’t know when [it] will be announced.”

There have been reports recently claiming that the North London club have already agreed on a €30m deal. Given the fact Torreira is expected to play a pivotal role for his country, it is good that Arsenal have managed to tie up the deal this quickly. All the formalities regarding the transfer are expected to be finished at the earliest and the transfer should be officially confirmed very soon.
In a short of span of time, the Sampdoria player has shown his ability in Serie A. His performances have not gone unnoticed and he is predicted to be one of the brightest upcoming talents today.
Arsenal did face some competition from Napoli when trying to sign Torreira but they seem to have pulled this one off. The departures of Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla has left Arsenal a little short in midfield.
The arrival of Torreira will surely bolster that department. It would not be an exaggeration to say that he combines the best of both Coquelin and Cazorla.
Getting a player with this kind of a skill set is sure to be of help. Torreira will be keen to prove himself in the Premier League. And fans are excited to see their potential signing do well in the World Cup. Uruguay will play their first match on the 15th of June.
