Arsenal is linked with Sampdoria defensive midfielder Lucas Torreira and the player will certainly be joining the gunners this summer transfer window even though it might take a little longer.

However, despite all of the speculation, the transfer is yet to be confirmed.

Torreira in an interview basically confirming his move said: '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'.

The 22-year-old was given an early release for his nation's summer exploits following their defeat to France at the quarter-final stage and made securing his long-term future at club level.

It is possible that Arsenal also trim their squad with David Ospina, Joel Campbell, Lucas Perez and Danny Welbeck all tipped to leave. With one year left on his current contract, Lorient felt it was the right time to sell, and multiple clubs have been in talks with the player since January, according to RMC.

"It is all done in a draft and only missing the arrival of Lucas to England", he added.

Torreira will fly direct to London from Moscow after Uruguay were knocked out of the World Cup on Friday.

The BBC's David Ornstein tweeted shortly after the full-time whistle that Torreira has agreed on a deal with Arsenal and that his signing and a medical is "imminent".

Should Guendouzi come through his medical, he will become Unai Emery's latest signing as Arsenal boss.

At this point, though, it's only a matter of time before the deal is completed, with Torreira set to join fellow new signings Sokratis and Stephan Lichtsteiner at the Emirates.
