Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern will be pleased with what Unai Emery is already trying to achieve since arriving at the Emirates Stadium this summer.
The Spaniard has been brought in to replace Arsene Wenger following the end of this 22-year reign and has been working hard to bring in a number of targets to help strengthen the side and ensure they can compete for a Champions League spot.
Emery is keen on bringing a new midfielder to the side and believes the centre of the field is a priority and appears to have found his ideal target to help fit the bill technically and financially.
As widely reported Arsenal in talks to sign Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira. No agreement but central midfield a priority & 22yo Uruguay int’l seen as ideal fit technically + financially. #AFC also want a GK after defensive signings of Lichtsteiner & Sokratis (announced July)

According to BBC Sport journalist David Ornstein, who is a reliable source for all things on the Gunners, Lucas Torreira is thought to be the main man on Emery’s list of possible acquisitions.
Arsenal have already been busy making moves during the transfer window as they look to become competitive once again, and Torreira would certainly help to add the cover in front of the defence.
That department, in particular, has proven to be an area of concern for the Gunners over the last few seasons, which is why several of our resident Arsenal fans are hoping their side are able to get a deal done for the 22-year-old Torreira this summer.
