As reported by our friends at ArsenalShorts, a respected journalist has revealed that Arsenal have already completed the signing of a new midfielder.
Unai Emery has come to the club with a lot to do after taking over from Arsene Wenger, who failed to secure a place in the Champions League for two seasons in a row.
The former Paris Saint-Germain manager has already managed to complete a shrewd deal to sign experienced full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner and he is now working on another move to bring in Sampdoria star Lucas Torreira.
The young South American had been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates stadium for the past couple of days and after all the speculation, the transfer now appears to be close to completion.
According to Fabrizio Romano, a deal which is widely reported to cost Arsenal £26.4 million, has already been completed for Torreira to join the Gunners.
The Italian journalist was asked by a fan about the latest on the 22-year-old’s move and his answer emphatically stated it was a ‘done’ deal.
is done mate! But I don’t know when will be announced
