New Arsenal signing sends message to Gunners supporters about his style

The publication says once Torreira seals his move he will then fly back to Montevideo in Uruguay to take a few days off before returning to London to begin his pre-season preparations with his new Arsenal team mates.

Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira has spoken out about his pending transfer to Arsenal after leaving the rest of his teammates and flying to London to complete a medical.

The 22-year-old needs to undergo a medical and put pen to paper before the deal can be confirmed.

The Gunners have been keen to land Torreira for some time now and it's believed that a deal worth around £25m has been agreed with Sampdoria.

A defensive midfielder, Torreira is the kind of player Arsenal have lacked in recent seasons.

While N'Zonzi was beating Uruguay in Russia, Sevilla president Jose Castro remarked that no formal bid has landed at his desk.

Football London claim Torreira is now due to fly to London from Russian Federation to undergo his medical with Arsenal as Emery wants the transfer wrapped-up as quickly as possible with pre-season preparations already well underway.

Torreira is set to join Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papastathopoulos as off-season signings at Arsenal.

Unai Emery is a huge fan of Gomes, so much so that he's willing to sell one of Arsenal's star players, Aaron Ramsey, in order to bring in the central midfielder.

His work rate will not only shield the Gunners defence, but also go some way to freeing up the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka to focus more on contributing to Arsenal's attacking play, when they tend to be at their best.
