Lucas Torreira signs for Arsenal

Arsenal announce signing of Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira

Official: Arsenal Announce 4th 2018/19 Signing

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria and the club's fans have shared their excitement on social media.

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.

Emery, preparing for his first season as Arsenal manager, said: 'We are delighted Matteo is joining us.

The pendulum of power in North London has shifted over the past two seasons with Tottenham landing consecutive top four spots at the expense of Arsenal.

Jack Wilshere has been allowed to leave the club, paving the way for Torreira's arrival. He has big potential and gained good first-team experience last season with Lorient. He ranked 9th in passing (2188), 3rd in tackles (101), 6th in interceptions (72) and 6th in fouls won (68) last season.

Lucas Torreira is an Arsenal player after completing his move from Sampdoria for a fee believed to be in the region of €30 million.

Prior to a deal being struck, it was widely reported that Emery would have this precise transfer budget at his disposal. Arsenal said he will join the squad in "early August" after a mandatory post-World Cup break.

But what kind of player is he and why were the club so keen to sign him?

It has been a quietly productive start for the Spaniard, who has been at the club for just 49 days.

The 22-year-old is expected to add the steel that Arsenal's midfield so often lacked during the final years of Arsene Wenger's reign.

"I tried to enjoy the World Cup as much as I could".
