Arsenal fans have been driven wild by the latest transfer revelation from BBC Sport journalist David Ornstein, a cult hero of the online Gooner community.
Ornstein is well connected at Arsenal and is often first to deliver the biggest news from goings on at the Emirates Stadium, including getting there before everyone else on the somewhat out-of-the-blue appointment of Unai Emery as manager earlier this summer.
The reporter now claims the Gunners will have two players undergoing medicals today as Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi look set to join the club.
Two medicals taking place at Arsenal today – 22-year-old Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria and 19-year-old France Under-20 midfielder Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient. Torreira key signing for immediate term, Guendouzi high-potential prospect for future #AFC #URU #FRA

As ever, this has been met with hilarious Ornstein memes from adoring Arsenal fans excited at this big latest development on their club’s transfer activity, which follows a strong summer transfer window overall.
New manager Emery has already been joined by Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Bernd Leno, and Torreira and Guendouzi should also prove useful additions to a squad that urgently needed reinforcements after last season’s disappointing campaign.
Here’s how it’s going down on Arsenal Twitter…
