Sampdoria sign Jakub Jankto as Torreira move to Arsenal approaches

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

Just in case that wasn't enough evidence for supporters, Torreira's own father has been doing little to keep the transfer a secret in recent interviews.

Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira and France Under-20 global Matteo Guendouzi are set to have medicals at Arsenal on Monday.

The 22-year-old's country are in the quarter-finals of the competition and he will hope to be involved when they take on France in Nizhny Novgorod today (3pm).

The transfer - rumoured to be in the £26 million region - was in advanced stages last month but hit delays when Torreira joined up with the Uruguayan squad for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

"The truth is it's tough to manage the language, adapt to the [London] society and customs and at the same time not lose ours".




"But there's a whole programme getting readied for Lucas".

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Torreira's father said: "It is as good as a fact that Lucas will join Arsenal".

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

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". "We are satisfied with what they offered us, but let's wait a little longer until the World Cup ends".

New signings of Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, and Stephan Lichtsteiner improves Emery's arsenal of defensive options.
