With Bruno Fernandes agreeing on a move to Manchester United, Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira hopes the Portuguese can quickly settle to life in the Premier League. 

The two were teammates for a year at Italian outfit Sampdoria before Fernandes made the move to Sporting CP back in 2017.

United confirmed in a statement that they agreed a deal to sign Fernandes from Sporting for an initial €55million fee with the deal subject to a medical and personal terms being agreed.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Torreira wished his former team-mate well at Old Trafford, "I really hope he adapts quickly, particularly as the Premier League is so physical and intense as a championship.

"I’m sure he has the right mentality to adapt quickly. Obviously he’s joining a big club in Manchester United so I hope he enjoys the move."

With the January transfer window closing on Friday, United are also being linked with late moves for youngsters Nathan Bishop and Jude Bellingham.
