Arsenal: Lucas Torreira agrees deal & Matteo Guendouzi set for medical

Latest news

    Torreira’s transfer has cost Arsenal around £26m

    Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Uruguay international midfielder Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria.

    The 22-year-old, who played in all five of his country’s World Cup matches before quarter-final defeat to France, will wear the club’s number 11 shirt.

    Manager Unai Emery said: “In Lucas Torreira we have signed a young player who is a very bright talent in the game. A midfielder with great quality.”

    Torreira will join the squad in early August after a post-World Cup break.

    His move is still subject to “regulatory processes” but he is set to become Emery’s fourth signing since succeeding Arsene Wenger as manager.

    The former Valencia and Paris St-Germain boss has also brought in goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, defender Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus and defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund.

    France under-20 international Matteo Guendouzi, 19, is also undergoing a medical with the club and is expected to sign from Lorient.
