Lucas Torreira flying to London for Arsenal medical — HAPPENING NOW

Arsenal transfer news live GETTYArsenal have signed Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund

The link showed a compilation of the 19-year-old's best moves and skills, earning the seal of approval from the £7m-rated youngster, although he has since "unliked" the post.

"The deal is virtually done and only the arrival of Lucas is remaining".

The Uruguay global has been strongly linked with a move to The Emirates this summer but the transfer has not gone through as he continues to represent his country at the World Cup in Russian Federation. The 22-year-old is expected to complete his move to the Emirates Stadium once his World Cup campaign finishes, but it appears he's rather intimidated by the prospect of the transfer.

"Arsenal offered to do the medical examinations in Russian Federation but we decided against it because we felt it was inconvenient, it is not the right time".

Defensive midfielder Torreira, 22, will help bolster the ranks further, having played in all five matches for Uruguay as they reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Russian Federation, while teenager Guendouzi brings with him great potential.

If they progress then a semi-final against Brazil or Belgium awaits on Tuesday.


Right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner joined on a free transfer after leaving Juventus, while goalkeeper Bernd Leno and centre-back Sokratis Papastahopoulos arrived from Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund respectively.

It's fair to say Arsenal fans will be happy if Torreira proves to be half the player Kante has been in England. "We do not look for buyers".

"I bought him from Pescara when no one believed. We placed a bet and we won, paying just €3m".

"Now the money that comes in will be used to keep the club going".

Those players not on World Cup duty have already returned for the start of pre-season training, with a first warm-up fixture set against Boreham Wood at Meadow Park on Saturday.
