Lucas Torreira confirms Gunners move ahead of medical

Arsenal transfer news live

Arsenal could conclude the Torreira deal early, depending on if the player flies to London from Russian Federation rather than later if he is to come to the city after visiting Uruguay.

Arsenal fans can't help keeping an eye on Lucas Torreira at the World Cup right now.

The Gunners have agreed a £26.5m (€30m) deal with Sampdoria for the midfielder.

Lucas Torreira's father says his son will be prepared for life in the Premier League when his "scary" transfer to Arsenal is completed.

But now I have more time my future will be very clear.

Arsenal target Steven N'Zonzi in action for Sevilla in the Spanish topflight.

This week the Squawka Talker discussed Spain's elimination to hosts Russian Federation and the Ronaldo-esque display delivered by Kylian Mbappe as France knocked out Argentina, but there was also a focus on one particular signing thought to be coming soon to the Premier League.

Those players who haven't been involved in the showpiece tournament over in Russian Federation have now returned to Arsenal's training ground to start their pre-season preparations, and of course, meet their new manager.

While N'Zonzi was beating Uruguay in Russia, Sevilla president Jose Castro remarked that no formal bid has landed at his desk.

Lorient youngster Matteo Guendouzi will undergo a medical at the club on Monday, along with Lucas Torreira.

If the 22-year-old joins Arsenal, he will become Unai Emery's fourth signing of the transfer window.

And according to French outlet Ouest-France, Lorient midfielder Guendouzi will under go his Arsenal medical today.

It is claimed that Banega, who has a further two years left to run on his contract at Sevilla, has not even ruled out extending his deal for a further year, which would take him up to the age of 33.
