Arsenal agrees £25m fee for Torreira

New boss Unai Emery has been on the look out for a defensive midfielder since replacing Arsene Wenger at the end of last season as Granit Xhaka is more of a deep lying playmaker and has been criticised for his lack of defensive awareness while Aaron Ramsey is more of a box-to-box type midfielder.

Torreira emerged as a prime target after developing in to one of the best holding players in Serie A since joining Sampdoria from Pescara in 2015 and he’s been showing off his talents for Uruguay at the World Cup this summer having played a starring role in their 2-1 last-16 win over Portugal.

Some Arsenal fans were concerned our proposed move to sign Torreira could be hijacked by a rival club following his excellent displays in Russia, however, it seems we’ve already got a deal in the bag.

The Sun are citing a report from the Daily Mail that claims Arsenal have agreed personal terms with Torreira while the finer details of a £25m deal with Sampdoria have also been finalised.

All that remains is to complete the transfer and the newspaper says that will be delayed until Uruguay are knocked out of the World Cup as Torreira needs to concentrate on their quarter final clash with France on Friday.
