Arsenal agree deal for youngster
Arsenal have reportedly agreed to a deal in principle with Sampdoria for promising star, Lucas Torreira, though the deal remains inconclusive due to disputes over agent fees.
According to reports, discussions between the two clubs were said to have reached a successful outcome, with an agreement set to be reached on the 10th of this month , as the Gunners are apparently willing to trigger the player’s release clause of 25 million Euros
However, reports have emerged talks between Gunners and Torreira’s representatives over personal arrangements is said to have reached an impasse over agent fees and this could possibly put the deal on hold.
Torreira is a defensive midfielder known for his astute defensive interceptions and the 22- year- old should add the spine somewhat lacking in a midfield stacked with creative albeit diminutive playmakers.
