Who Arsenal could sign next after they complete Lucas Torreira transfer

Mexico's forward Hirving Lozano holds the ball during the Russia 2018 World Cup round of 16 football match between Brazil and Mexico at the Samara Arena in Samara

And his current team, Sampdoria, agreed a £25million fee with Arsenal for a transfer during the competition in Russian Federation.

How soon an official announcement is made depends upon whether or not the 22-year-old flies to London direct from Russian Federation or heads home to Uruguay first, according to the BBC.

Unai Emery is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him to the Emirates this summer.

The father of Sampdoria and Uruguay midfielder, Lucas Torreira, has admitted that his son is "scared" to join Arsenal this summer.

"It is as good as a fact that Lucas will join Arsenal", Ricardo Torreira told Fox Sports Argentina. With one year left on his current contract, Lorient felt it was the right time to sell, and multiple clubs have been in talks with the player since January, according to RMC.

Brunson was in a Turkish prison for 21 months until he was transferred to house arrest last week. He said the sanctions are meant to show Turkey that the U.S. is "serious" about the issue.

"The deal is virtually done and only the arrival of Lucas is remaining", he added.

The Uruguay global midfielder has been linked with the Gunners for some time and a deal appears close.

Once Torreira has completed a medical, he will become Arsenal's fourth signing of the summer transfer window.

Defensive midfielder Torreira, 22, will help bolster the ranks further, having played in all five matches for Uruguay as they reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Russian Federation, while teenager Guendouzi brings with him great potential.

Arsenal begin their pre-season campaign at non-league Boreham Wood on July 14.
