A video has emerged online appearing to show Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira confirming he’s set to complete a transfer to Arsenal soon.
The Uruguay international should now be available to get his medical done and finalise a deal after his country were knocked out of the World Cup by France earlier today.
Arsenal hope to complete Lucas Torreira deal next week. Agreed with Sampdoria & 22yo.
