Arsenal has been linked with Uruguay global Lucas Torreira for about four weeks now but the gunners have finally completed the deal after many weeks of waiting but the Arsenal supporters today finally received the good news after the North Londoners posted on all their social networks the arrival of the defensive midfielder.

Arsenal had already agreed a deal with Torreira's former club Sampdoria but the move was delayed due to the 22-year-old's participation in the World Cup.

Torriera is Arsenal's fourth summer signing following the purchases of Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and the arrival of Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer.

He was warmly greeted by Unai Emery at London Colney as he arrived to complete the formalities, though he won't start training straight away as his season has only just drawn to a close.

Earlier on Tuesday, Arsenal formally announced the £26m signing of Uruguay World Cup star Torreira who joined from Sampdoria.

"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".

Now, it has been revealed that Torreira will wear the number 11 shirt at Arsenal, previously occupied by Mesut Özil who switched to 10.

'He is a young player already with good experience, but who wants to keep on growing, ' said Emery.

The Uruguayan emerged as one of the top holding midfielders in Serie A over the last two seasons and has been compared to both Chelsea's N'Golo Kante and Paris Saint-Germain's Marco Verratti.

Sampdoria's midfielder is joining the Gunners for £26m, having undergone a medical yesterday. His presence in the team will also help Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka in elevating their game knowing that there is an assuring presence in the midfield.
