BREAKING : Arsenal sign Torreira

BREAKING : Arsenal sign Torreira

10 Jul 2018, 17:20

Arsenal has completed the signing of Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira in a deal believed to be worth £25million.

A move for Torreira had been placed on the back burner whilst the Uruguay international was at the World Cup but, following La Celeste’s elimination at the quarter-final stage, Arsenal moved quickly to wrap up his signing. The former Sampdoria anchorman is expected to be the last major acquisition of a summer that has seen new manager Unai Emery, together with heads of recruitment and football relations Sven Mislintat and Raul Sanllehi, overhaul the Arsenal defence.

The 22-year-old is expected to add the steel that Arsenal’s midfield so often lacked during the final years of Arsene Wenger’s reign. Despite his relatively diminutive stature, standing at five-feet-five-inches tall, he showed an impressive physicality with both Uruguay at the World Cup, where he featured in five matches, and last season at Sampdoria.

Other Arsenal signings

Torreira’s arrival follows those of goalkeeper Bernd Leno, centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos and right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner and is expected to conclude the first-team strengthening this summer.
