Reports in Italy had suggested that La Samp and the Gunners had already agreed a deal for the Uruguay worldwide, but the transfer was put on hold until after his participation in Russian Federation.

The Uruguay worldwide has been strongly linked with a move to The Emirates this summer but the transfer has not gone through as he continues to represent his country at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Reports from L'Equipe have claimed that Emery personally convinced the player, who plays in a holding role in midfield, to choose London over Paris for the next step in his career.

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.

Speaking to Fox Argentina, Ricardo Torreira said his son's move to the Emirates Stadium would go through "if nothing odd happens".




Lucas Torreira's father said that they were many clubs that gave them offers but says that they like which Arsenal gave them because it was better than the others, he also said that they won't back down from their decision and snub a move to the Emirates Stadium because they have given the gunners their word. With one year left on his current contract, Lorient felt it was the right time to sell, and multiple clubs have been in talks with the player since January, according to RMC.

The Uruguayan is on the verge of completing his move to the Gunners, with a deal having been agreed for some time. The 22-year-old defensive midfielder shone during Uruguay's World Cup campaign, helping his nation to the quarter-finals before their exit against France on Friday afternoon.

Swiss defender Stephan Lichtsteiner was signed from Juventus on a free transfer, while goalkeeper Bernd Leno joined from Bayer Leverkusen and Greece centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos arrived from Borussia Dortmund in a deal reported to be worth around 20 million euros (£17.7million).

Arsenal's non-World Cup stars returned for pre-season training earlier this week ahead of their opening pre-season friendly at Boreham Wood on July 14.
