Arsenal set to complete fourth summer signing next week – report
Arsenal will complete the signing of Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria next week, according to reports
Arsenal will complete the signing of Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria next week but do not anticipate adding any more senior players to their squad this summer, according to reports in the British media.
BBC Sport, as quoted by Metro, is claiming that the Gunners are closing in on a deal to land the 22-year-old Uruguay midfielder after his national team were knocked out of the World Cup by France.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move to bring Torreira to The Emirates this summer as new manager Unai Emery looks to build a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League next season.
Now, it is being claimed that the north London side are on the verge of completing the deal, although that may well be the Gunners’ final signing of the summer.
Arsenal will be looking to at least break back into the top four next season after the Gunners finished in sixth place and without a trophy last season under Arsene Wenger.
The north London side have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
Wenger opted to stand down at the end of last season after another trophyless campaign at The Emirates.
