Lucas Torreira is a 'bright talent' says Arsenal head coach Unai Emery

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

Arsenal have completed the signing of defensive midfielder Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria.

Torreira will sign a five-year contract at the Emirates.

Arsenal unveiled their new man in a Uruguay-themed video on their social media accounts.

Arsenal have been waiting to seal the deal due to Torreira being at the World Cup in Russian Federation as part of the Uruguay squad.

"In Lucas Torreira, we have signed a young player who is a very bright talent in the game", new Gunners boss Unai Emery told the club's official website.

It referenced the lion tattoo he has on his arm and carried the tagline "Time for Torreira". Uruguay lost to France in the Quarter-Finals of this year's tournament last week.

Mr Buckland said there had been a realisation that "we all hang together or we all hang separately". Johnson had resigned , saying the Brexit "dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

We give honest thanks to the Uruguayan midfielder- 74 appearances and 4 goals as a blucerchiato- for the commitment shown in these two seasons and the greatest good luck for the rest of his career is wished by President Massimo Ferrero and all of the company.

"We welcome Lucas to Arsenal and look forward to him joining us soon for pre-season".

Torreira is Arsenal's fourth arrival of the window after goalkeeper Bernd Leno, centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos and right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner.

Lucas Torreira has signed for Arsenal from Sampdoria amd will wear the No 11 shirt.

His speed should fit in well with Emery's plans to deploy a more aggressive press when Arsenal are without the ball, and his ability to link defence and attack should help fill part of the void left by Santi Cazorla's and Jack Wilshere's departures.
