It is a nice surprise to see Arsenal conduct their transfer business so early and this had made many fans look forward to the new season with a sense of optimism.
One of the players that Arsenal brought in is the Uruguayan midfielder, Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria.
His transfer was greeted with a lot of excitement from everyone and it appears that Mesut Ozil to has joined in to welcome Torreira.
This is welcome that Ozil had for the midfielder:

A nice touch from the German maestro as he extends a friendly arm to his new teammate. Ozil knows how difficult it is to move to another country and do well. And, it is important for a club to have some harmony among its players and little things like this will surely help.
The deal for Torreira has been in the pipeline for a long time and when it was announced, it was met with a lot of relief.
The president of Sampdoria spoke about the player’s departure and it is clear to see how crucial he was for the Italian team. This is what he had to say:
“It will be very complicated to replace him”, Ferrero told Italian newspaper Il Secolo XIX.
“We are looking at four different players: a Spaniard, a Belgian, a Croatian and one Italian.
“We need a strong player who can help us to make a step forward.”
That first line tells you all that you need to know about Torreira and the message from Ozil also shows that he recognizes the talent he has. One can see the way in which both will be crucial to anything that Arsenal are trying to do next season.
The team that Unai Emery is trying to build looks a little different from the one that Wenger had. And it is clear to see why the fans have a lot of optimism about the upcoming season and they will be hoping that both Ozil and Torreira will excel.
