Arsenal manager Unai Emery is set to add another player to his squad. The former Paris St-German boss has added some new faces to the team since the start of the ongoing transfer season and he’s still keen on luring more world-class players to the Emirates Stadium.
We reported here last night that the Gunners are still interested in completing their move for Lucas Torreira, who plays for Serie A side Sampdoria.
However, Italian media outlet Football Italia has confirmed earlier this morning that the Gunners are on the verge of capturing the 22-year-old’s signature before Uruguay’s first match in the world cup.
In the report, it is believed that the Uruguayan defensive midfielder will have his medicals with the North London club in coming days.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claimed in his yesterday’s report that the Gunners have agreed to pay £24.6m for his signature before the start of the upcoming season.
Arsenal were unimpressive at the middle of the park throughout last season. Despite the acquisition of Mktarryan, who was deployed as a midfielder by Arsene Wenger, the North London failed to live up to their usual high-pressing games.
With this report, the Gunners fans should be prepared to welcome another midfielder, who has proven himself as one of the players who could help Unai Emery in his mission to return the club back to their glory days.
