Unai Emery Arsenal Emil Forsberg Matteo Guendouzi

Torreira shined with Uruguay in Russian Federation in their deep run to the World Cup quarterfinals.

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria and the club's fans have shared their excitement on social media.

The player will not arrive until next month following a period of rest after the World Cup.

Emery, preparing for his first season as Arsenal manager, said: 'We are delighted Matteo is joining us.

Guendouzi broke into Lorient's first team two years ago and made 20 appearances last season.

Primarily a defensively-minded player, Torreira is known for his high energy and tenacious approach and despite only being five foot six he rarely shies away from the physical side of the game.

Their economic commitment represents far more than that, given that Ronaldo will draw a salary of some €30m a year in Turin. Brazil legend Pele even also took the chance to congratulate Cristiiano Ronaldo on his switch to the Serie A .

It's great to see that Lucas Torreira has signed for the club.

He expressed his desire to join Arsenal and we therefore moved quickly to bring the matter to conclusion, believing a swift resolution to be in the best interest of both Sam and the club. I want to make the most of this opportunity life has given me. "He is a talented young player and a lot of clubs were interested in him". I hope I can do great things here.

Unfortunately for Tottenham, Arsenal are landing Torreira just as they are said to be losing Dembele.

Part of Unai Emery's remit will also include ensuring the continuation of the footballing philosophies and foundations laid down by Wenger.

"I want to win titles, titles, titles". Ozil recently switched to number 10.

The former Paris-Saint Germain boss has been busy in the transfer window already, signing Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos for £17.6m, free agent right-back Stefan Lichtsteiner and Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno for £19m.
