Lucas Torreira is joining Arsenal. It is just a matter of when and not IF the deal will be done now it seems. Highly reliable BBC journalist David Ornstein has confirmed the deal is likely to be completed by next week.
And in the video below from social media, the Uruguayan international himself was seen confirming he will indeed be signing for Arsenal. It looks as though Arsenal fans can’t wait as they have made a mock picture of the Uruguayan in an Arsenal shirt:
Hopefully the deal Arsenal have in place is not just some verbal agreement with the player and his current club, Sampdoria. Arsenal fans will be very disappointed if anything happens and the player moves to a club other than the Gunners.
It has happened to Arsenal too many times hence one is right to be scared that the Gunners may be hijacked yet again if they leave things too late. It’s all good and well if the player has signed a contract and is only waiting for their medical to be carried out. But if Torreira hasn’t signed a deal yet, and with N’Golo Kanté being linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal will now need to push the deal through quickly to prevent missing out like they have in the past with other players.
