Done Deal: Arsenal to finalise and announce 4th summer signing in coming days

Arsenal are set to finalize what would be their fourth major signing of the summer in the coming days as they close in on Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira, according to the Daily Star.
.
The Gunners have been in talks with Sampdoria over the midfielder since early last month, with a fee of £25 million reported to have been offered by the North London side before the World Cup.
.
A number of sources have even confirmed that a deal had been agreed for the defensive midfielder since last month
However, the deal is now said to be close to being finalized this week and the Gunners are hoping to wrap up what will be their fourth arrival this summer.
.
Arsenal started their summer transfer business with the arrival of Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus on a free transfer, then they followed up with Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, and on Monday they announced the signing of Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund which similar to Torreira’s deal was a protracted transfer.
.
The Uruguay international is currently at the World Cup in Russia with his national team where he has greatly impressed with his performances, playing all four of his side’s games at the tournament.
.
His performance against Portugal in the round of 16 particularly singled him out for praises from fans and pundits after a very dogged performance.
Gary Neville was among those who praised him after the game, he said; “ Torreira, the defensive midfielder, he gets back in every time.
.
“I don’t know how many times, but he’s always there to clear it.”
