Arsenal have completed the signing of Sampdoria and Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira in a deal reported to be worth €30 million.
The deal was finalized after Torreira flew into London following Uruguay’s exit at the World Cup in Russia, having helped his country reach the quarterfinals.

Head coach Unai Emery said: “In Lucas Torreira, we have signed a young player who is a very bright talent in the game.
A midfielder with great quality, I have enjoyed watching his performances for Sampdoria in the past two seasons, and we all saw him do very well for Uruguay in the World Cup.
He is a young player already with good experience, but who wants to keep on growing. We welcome Lucas to Arsenal and look forward to him joining us soon for pre-season.”
Starting his youth career in Uruguay with I.A 18 Julio and then Montevideo Wanderers, Lucas moved to Italy in 2013 where he joined Pescara. He made his debut there as a 19-year-old in May 2015.
