Uruguay international Lucas Torreira has now confirmed that he will join north Londoners Arsenal, at the end of the World Cup in Russia.
The story has been all over the news for quite some time and his father talked about it recently, though a deal was not done so far. However, with the player now confirming the same in a recent interview, it seems that the move will be going through soon. It was shared by Superfan @MrArsenicTM on Twitter for the general public, as soon as the Torreira let everyone knows of his intention of moving to the Emirates.
The Uruguyan is a 22-year-old talented defensive midfielder and could be a great asset to Unai Emery’s side in the long run. And if he can find his footing in the Premier League quickly, Arsenal get a quality star to play alongside Granit Xhaka. The Sampdoria star has already shown his class in the World Cup, with more than a few brilliant performances. There have been some issues that the north London giants have been facing in terms of filling in the void at that position in midfield and the Serie A star could be the solution for that.
The new Arsenal boss is looking for players who can help him win titles and Torreira could be one such star, as he heads into his debut season as manager in England. The post-Wenger-era has already seen the likes of Jack Wilshere leave the Emirates and there could be more stars who could now be on the move this summer.
Hopefully, the deal goes through now as Arsenal look to sign another defense-minded star, having already signed a couple of defenders already. The Spaniard is looking to make an impression and with the kind of signings that he has got already, things could get really interesting for the Gunners.
Emery is trying his best to fill all the voids in his squad, as he looks to add more stability to the team. He was done really well so far in terms of adding defensive signings and now can focus on adding a bit more firepower to his midfield and attack in the days to follow. The rebuilding phase has been going really well so far and hopefully things can only improve in the seasons to come.
