Lucas Torreira confirms Arsenal transfer

Uruguay midfielder, Lucas Torreira has confirmed he is set to join Arsenal.

Torreira is reportedly on his way to London, to complete his medical checks with the Gunners ahead of a move.

Arsenal agreed a fee with Sampdoria for his services before the 2018 World Cup began, but the 22-year-old dithered on the move to focus on the tournament.

However, with his country out of the competition, Torreira is set to wrap up the transfer.

He told Telenoche: “I would have been very happy to be able to return to Uruguay with my teammates, but this is a fantastic opportunity [to join Arsenal] and I do not want to waste it.”
