Gunners now in further talks to agree £26m signing

Sky Sports are also reporting that the Gunners are closing in on the addition of another new player ahead of the start of the pre-season fixtures.

New Arsenal manager Unai Emery has had a fairly busy transfer window so far, after replacing Arsene Wenger almost two months ago.

Having signed the likes of Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papadopoulos so far, the former Paris Saint-Germain boss is rumoured to be targeting more deals before the start of the new season.

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal and Sampdoria are continuing to hold further talks over the signing of Lucas Torreira.

Indeed, the report states that both clubs have reached an agreement over a deal which will be worth around £26million even though there is still some work to do before the midfielder completes his move.

Torreira was a key part of the Uruguay team which did well to reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup before being knocked out by France on Friday.
