Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern will be excited with the way Unai Emery has kicked off his reign as the new manager and will be looking forward to the start of the Premier League campaign.
The former Paris Saint-Germain boss is determined to get the Gunners back into the Champions League and has been busy rebuilding the squad he inherited from Arsene Wenger this summer.
He has already been active in the transfer window, having brought in the likes of Stephan Lichtsteiner and Bernd Leno to the Emirates Stadium so far, however, it appears he is set to be able to confirm the arrival of another duo in the very near future.
Lucas Torreira will have medicals with Arsenal soon, the deal is completed. And Arsenal will finalize Sokratis Papastathopoulous deal too!
Respected Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has stated on his Twitter account that a deal for Sampdoria’s Lucas Torreira is just awaiting a medical for it to go through, whilst Arsenal are also believed to be ready to finalise a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Sokratis Papastathopoulous as well.
The news that the Gunners are about to complete a double deal for two highly-rated talents will please the fans in the Tavern. The pair will help to solve Arsenal’s defence issues that have been glaring during some of their matches and will help to give Emery a solid platform in which to try and bring Champions League football back to the Emirates Stadium.
