The Gunners are reportedly close to sealing the transfer deal for Uruguayan sensation Lucas Torreira.
Torreira has been keenly watched on the English outfit’s radar for quite sometime now and will finally be able to start his new life at the Emirates after he undergoes a medical this week.
According to rife reports, the Sampdoria midfielder will undergo his medical at Arsenal this week.
A five-year deal, touted by the Daily Mirror, will tie him down at Arsenal..
Torreira, 22, admired for his tackling abilities and shrewd passes is also a part of the Uruguayan team at the World Cup in Russia.
Though he failed to feature in the early hours of their group clash against Egypt in Russia, he did emerge later on as the South Americans narrowly beat off a fiesty Egyptian side that lacked the attacking aura of Mohammed Salah.
Arsenal are expected to cough up £26 million(€30m), to trigger his release clause and complete his switch to London.
Torreira has been tipped to feel very comfortable under the Gunners atmosphere, particularly their kind of play. A fast pace football will definitely not deter the youngster from reprising his vintage performance at Sampdoria and perhaps exceed that former mark.
