Arsenal make approach for South American star midfielder

  Arsenal make approach for South American star midfielder Arsenal have made contact with Sampdoria regarding the availability of midfielder Lucas Torreira, according to reports in Italy. The 22-year-old, who has also been linked with moves to Liverpool and Napoli, is being touted with a move this summer after a great season in Serie A. Torreira’s form for Sampdoria saw him earn a place in Uruguay’s World Cup squad and Arsenal were seemingly keeping a close eye on him. Unai Emery reportedly made a late attempt to try to hijack the move to take Fabinho from Monaco to Liverpool, but was ultimately unsuccessful and as such, it’s obvious that he’s looking to add another midfielder to his squad. Whilst Torreira obviously does not possess the same physique as Fabinho, he does play in defensive midfield role, like the Brazilian international and as such, it makes sense that the Gunners would be looking at him. With the World Cup only a few weeks away, Arsenal might have to act quickly if they want to sign the Uruguayan before he jets off to Russia.

Leicester City midfielder Riyad Mahrez has agree personal terms with Serie A side Roma, according to reports. Arsenal have been linked with him numerous times over the summer, while there was also speculation this time last summer when he was at the peak of his form.

Arsenal appear to have edged ever closer to completing a deal to sign Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria.

Negotiations have been ongoing between the Gunners and the Serie A club and it seems, following news of the two clubs agreeing a deal for the transfer, personal terms between Arsenal and Torreira have been agreed.

According to claims from Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, a salary of €3m per year along with performance-based bonuses are the terms that have been agreed, as Torreira closes in on his first move to the Premier League.

It’s reported that the agreed a fee between Arsenal and Sampdoria is priced in the region of €30M, with the Gunners set to recruit the defensive midfielder in the near future.

Torreira is set to feature for Uruguay at the World Cup after being included in Oscar Tabarez’s 23-man squad for the tournament.

Sampdoria have confirmed that Lucas Torreira has left the club for a fee of €30m. The owner of Sampdoria, Massimo Ferrero, has confirmed that Torreira has completed a move elsewhere. Arsenal is expected to be his destination, after reports claiming that Arsenal had agreed a deal for the midfielder. Torreira is currently on international duty with Uruguay at the World Cup in Russia, and will likely complete his move after the tournament. As quoted by Calcio Mercato, Ferrero said this: “Torreira’s gone for €30m.” “I bought him from Pescara when no-one believed in him. We gambled on him and won, paying just €3m for him.” Torreira was a star for Sampdoria in the Serie A last season and was named in the Team of the Season.
