Arsenal fans seem to be getting restless about their club’s potential signing of Lucas Perreira after the player put in a man of the match-level performance to help Uruguay beat Portugal on Saturday.
The Sampdoria star is reportedly set to sign with the north London club next week as per the Daily Mail, with is also being reported that the club need to finalise negotiations for the midfielder.
The midfielder put in a stunning performance for Uruguay against Portugal in the World Cup round of 16 on Saturday, one that helped his side beat Ronaldo and Co 2-1, meaning they will now take on France in the quarter finals.
During and after the match, fans took to Twitter to call for the club to get a deal for the player over the line, with some fans getting cautious with how long it’s taking for the club to get a deal for the player over the line.
Here are a few select tweets from fans calling the Gunners to get a deal for the player over the line, and judging by his display yesterday, we can understand why they’re restless!
Oh Torreira, I’m afraid some big spenders would hijack the deal from @Arsenal. If sampdoria already agreed, only personal terms can spoil the party I guess. @Arsenal don’t Arsene this deal! Give him what he wants please!

Until Torreira signs for Arsenal, he’ll probably still join Juventus.

Pretty worried that after all these Torreira performances, someone sweeps in with a 50m offer and steals the deal…

Been very impressed with Torreira this game. I’m worried if Uruguay go far more clubs will be interested in him and we’ll lose out…
