Sky Sports CONFIRM Arsenal "very close" to completing €25m deal with Serie A star


Arsenal have already completed their first signing of this summer with the arrival of Stephan Lichsteiner on a free transfer from Juventus earlier this week which is Unai Emery's first signing with Arsenal.

It's also believed the club have also reached an agreement with Borussia Dortmund to sign Greek centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos, with the transfer due to be announced in the coming month. And if report coming from Italian news agency ANSA, the Gunners are "very close" to another summer acquisition in Torreira this summer.

The report claims that Sampdoria have already signed Lokomotiv Zagreb midfielder Lovro Majer as a replacement for Torreira should he eventually join the Premier League club Arsenal.

Sky Sports Italy have also reported that Arsenal are willing to sanction his reported €25 million (£22m) release clause. Torreira, however, is currently with Uruguay's national team and is preparing for the World Cup competition in Russia this summer so nothing should be expected until at least when the World Cup is in the latter stages.

Arsenal are very serious in the market for new acquisitions more especially in the central midfield following departure of Santi Cazorla, while the future of Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey still remains uncertain with the club.
