Arsenal fans react to the news that Lucas Torreira will have a medical at the club

Arsenal fans will be enjoying the club’s business so far this summer as new boss Unai Emery looks to build a squad capable of breaking back into the top four of the Premier League.

Having already signed goalkeeper Bernd Leno and right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner, Arsenal now look set to finalise deals for Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund and Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria.

Italian Sky Sports journalist Fabrizio Romano tweeted that the deal for Torreira was done and all that was left was for the Uruguayan to have his medical at The Emirates.

Torreira is a diminutive central-midfielder who can break up opposition attacks whilst also being comfortable on the ball and able to create chances for his own side.

The defensive side of his game, offering protection to a back four, is certainly what Arsenal fans have been crying out for in their midfield for recent years.

Gunners’ fans on Twitter have been buzzing about his impending move from Italy. Check out some of their best reactions here…
