The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are getting more and more excited by the day as they seemingly get closer (as per the Daily Mail) to the signing of Lucas Torreira. The Uruguayan midfielder has been top class for his country in the World Cup and the Gunners will be hoping he can do the same for Arsenal.

Unai Emery looks to be stamping his image on the current Arsenal squad. The Spaniard has already made some big decisions in deciding to let Jack Wilshere go whilst also bringing in both Bernd Leno and Stephan Lichtsteiner. The Gunners will be much stronger at the back next season as Emery has targeted players to tighten their not-so-water-tight defence, with the frontline not needing any changes.
The fans have mostly been getting excited about Sampdoria’s Lucas Torreira though. The young midfielder has proven to be a huge hit in both Serie A this season and the World Cup this summer and he would be a huge addition to the Arsenal team with the club lacking someone who can spot danger and turn defence into attack as effectively as the 22-year-old.
You can read our local Gunners’ verdict on Torreira here:
Torreira is simply brilliant! his defensive work is really impressive but can also create chances with his great passing ability and dribbling skills! This is the type of player arsenal need to become one of the top clubs again

100% Torreira. I think he could end up being the best piece of transfer Buisness we do all summer if he arrives and replicates the form he has at the World Cup and in Serie A #SvenMagic

After his WC outings there is no doubt, that Torreira is the real deal. This kid will turn into one of the best CDM in the league shortly.
