Arsenal complete signing of Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira in £26.4m deal

Official: Arsenal complete signing of Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira
Arsenal have completed the signing of Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria in a deal worth £26.4million, the club have confirmed.
Torreira, 22, becomes Unai Emery’s fourth signing of the summer following the Gunners’ captures of Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus, Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen and Sokratis from Borussia Dortmund.

Strengthening central midfield has been a priority for Emery ever since he replaced Arsene Wenger at the Emirates, especially after losing Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla, and Torreira emerged as the club’s top target.
The Uruguayan will wear the No. 11 shirt which was vacant after Mesut Ozil took Jack Wilshere’s No. 10.
