Arsenal complete move for Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira

Arsenal transfer news Unai Emery Ivan Gazidis PSG Yacine Adli gossip changed mind

Arsenal have announced the signing of midfielder Lucas Torreira who impressed with Uruguay in their run to the quarter-final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

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

The 22-year-old played all five of Uruguay's World Cup matches in Russian Federation, as they crashed out in the quarter-finals following a 2-0 defeat by France.

"He is a young player already with good experience, but who wants to keep on growing".

The signing is also another step toward shoring up a defensive unit that struggled badly last season under Arsene Wenger, with Arsenal having already signed veteran right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer from Juventus, Borussia Dortmund centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

Along with playing no defense, his relationship with head coach Mike D'Antoni has a messy past. Melo recently opted in to his contract with Oklahoma City to garner $27.9 million next season.

Emery's first game in charge of Arsenal will be the pre-season game against Atletico Madrid on July 26.

Torreira joined Sampdoria in 2015 and made 71 appearances for the Italian club.

Torreira was given the green light to complete his switch to Arsenal after the South American side lost to Les Bleus, and he has now put pen-to-paper with the Gunners, becoming the club's fourth signing of the summer transfer window.

With midfielders Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla released at the end of their contracts, Torreira's addition will be seen as key for Emery to bolster his numbers in the middle of the park.

He has been handed the number 11 shirt at Arsenal and Gunners head coach Emery has hailed the capture of the 22-year-old.
