Deal to be Announced Soon: £25m South American Midfielder Confirms Arsenal Transfer

Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira has confirmed that he has been on the verge to become Arsenal’s fourth summer signing.
The North London club have been locked in talks with Serie A side Sampdoria for a number of weeks, however, Uruguay’ International midfielder’s exit from the World Cup is believed to have accelerated the deal that is expected to be announced within days.
A £25m fee has been reportedly agreed between the two parties, and the 22-year-old has recently confirmed that he is set for medical in London.
“I would have been very happy to be able to return to Uruguay with my teammates, but this is a fantastic opportunity (to join Arsenal) and I do not want to waste it,” Torreira told Telenoche.
Torreira is believed to become the Gunners fourth signing of the summer following the arrivals of, Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus, Bayer Leverkusen’s Bernd Leno and Borussia Dortmund’s Soktratis Papasthathopoulous.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are also believed to be monitoring highly-rated Lorient midfielder Matteo Guendouzi who is expected ot join the Gunners next week.
