Some excited Arsenal fans are urging the club to announce the completed transfer of Lucas Torreira after Uruguay’s World Cup exit to France.
The 22-year-old could not prevent his country losing 2-0 to Les Bleus in today’s quarter-final, with goals coming from Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann.
It has long been claimed that Torreira is a target for Arsenal, with the Telegraph among the sources to recently state a deal could be concluded after the player’s participation in the World Cup in Russia.
With Uruguay now out after today’s result, some Gooners clearly think things could move along quickly and many are tweeting in excitement as they hope for an announcement.
It remains to be seen if they’re getting a tad ahead of themselves, but here’s a look at how a large number of their fans are reacting to today’s Uruguay result as Torreira will now be heading back from Russia and be free to finalise any remaining details over a transfer to the Emirates Stadium…
