Arsenal Confirm signing of Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira

Arsenal have confirmed that the signing of Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira has been completed.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with the 22-year-old for some weeks now, but a deal has been held up due to Uruguay reaching the FIFA 2018 World Cup quarter-finals.

However, four days on from their exit from the tournament, Arsenal are now in a position to announce the arrival of the player for an unrevealed fee.

Manager Unai Emery told the club’s official website: “In Lucas Torreira, we have signed a young player who is a very bright talent in the game. A midfielder with great quality, I have enjoyed watching his performances for Sampdoria in the past two seasons, and we all saw him do very well for Uruguay in the World Cup.

“He is a young player already with good experience, but who wants to keep on growing. We welcome Lucas to Arsenal and look forward to him joining us soon for pre-season.”

Torreira will not link up with Arsenal until August following a period of rest after the ongoing World Cup in Russia.
