Arsenal Complete Signing Of Uruguayan Torreira

11 July 2018

While all eyes are on the World Cup, Arsenal have wasted no time in bringing in fresh blood for Emery's first season in charge of the Gunners.

Torreira claimed that he is looking forward to his new "adventure" in England.

Arsenal confirmed this afternoon that the Uruguayan worldwide has joined the club on a long-term contract with the Daily Mail claiming we've paid Sampdoria £25m for his signature.

Arsenal also signed goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen for £19m to challenge Petr Cech and David Ospina.

Arsenal have officially announced their fourth arrival of the post-Arsene Wenger era, with a midfielder joining the club for a reported fee of £22 million.

The Uruguay worldwide has completed his move to the Premier League club following the end of his involvement at the 2018 World Cup, where his country reached the quarter-finals.

Eden Hazard makes huge statement on Chelsea future amid Real Madrid rumours
Although Hazard did remain tight-lipped when the subject of Real Madrid was mentioned insisting that he will have to see after the World Cup.

"I am used to coping with this kind of thing in the best possible way". It makes me feel comfortable.

The combative midfielder reflected on the experience, saying: "I feel very proud of it, it all turned out great for me".

The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.

BBC journalist David Ornstein then confirmed on Twitter on Monday that Guendouzi was due to undergo his medical in north London after flying-in from France to complete the surprise transfer ahead of signing a five-year contract. Arsenal said he will join the squad in "early August" after a mandatory post-World Cup break.

His speed should fit in well with Emery's plans to deploy a more aggressive press when Arsenal are without the ball, and his ability to link defence and attack should help fill part of the void left by Santi Cazorla's and Jack Wilshere's departures.

The Belgian has just one year left on his contract and is expected to push for an exit after the World Cup.
