Lucas Torreira breaks silence after deciding to delay £26m Arsenal transfer

Lucas Torreira has confirmed that he did choose to delay his transfer to Arsenal but admits his £26.4 million move will be resolved soon.
The Gunners have already agreed a fee with Sampdoria but the deal has not been completed due to Uruguay’s World Cup campaign.
Arsenal had requested for Torreira to undergo a medical while he was in Russia, but the midfielder decided to hold off until Uruguay’s participation in the tournament was over.
On Friday, Uruguay were knocked out by France at the quarter-final stage, which has now cleared the path for Arsenal to secure their fourth signing of the summer.
‘Being part of this squad in this World Cup, the truth that it was something magnificent,’ Torreira said after Uruguay’s 2-0 defeat to France.
‘We go home with our heads held high because we knew how to leave everything until the end.
Asked if he decided to postpone his medical with Arsenal until after the World Cup, Torreira replied: ‘Yes, we could have done things differently, but I did not want to think about other things.
‘The World Cup is important and being part of this squad meant a lot to me.
‘But now I have more time my future will be very clear.
‘The important thing is that I’m happy to have been part of this squad and this World Cup, so I thank all the people who accompanied us.’
