Lucas Torreira is a 'bright talent' says Arsenal head coach Unai Emery

Arsenal have completed the signing of Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria.

Torreira, 22, appeared in three matches for Uruguay at the World Cup, including in their quarterfinal defeat in France.

So it's now official that Lucas Torreira is a gunner and the Arsenal fans will be eager to know who will be next in Unai Emery's transfer plans.

He was warmly greeted by Unai Emery at London Colney as he arrived to complete the formalities, though he won't start training straight away as his season has only just drawn to a close.

Arsenal said he will join the squad in "early August" after a mandatory post-World Cup break.

The summer transfer window is open and managers are working hard on their transfer targets so we'll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe.

Torreira becomes the club's fourth signing of the offseason, joining goalkeeper Bernd Leno and defenders Stephan Lichtsteiner and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Torreira will wear the No 11 shirt that Mesut Özil occupied until this summer, with the German instead set to be wearing the No 10 shirt vacated by Jack Wilshere, now at West Ham.

The 19-year-old Lorient midfielder was expected to undergo his medical on Monday and his arrival could be announced later in the week.

The midfielder made a total of 74 appearances for the Serie A side, scoring four goals.

"He is a young player already with good experience, but who wants to keep on growing".

Emery's first game in charge of Arsenal will be the pre-season game against Atletico Madrid on July 26.
