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.’
