Agent reveals Lucas Torreira 'will be Arsenal's No6'

An agent has confirmed Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira is on his way to Arsenal.

The Uruguay midfielder has been linked with a move to north London for the past few weeks, but neither Arsenal nor Sampdoria have confirmed the £26.4million deal has been completed.

Branislav Jasurek, the agent of Celta Vigo star Stanislav Lobotka - who was also linked with a move to north London - let slip the news in an interview with La Voz de Galicia.

Explaining why his client won't be signing for the Gunners, he said: "Arsenal have bought Torreira to play six, so I do not think it's going to happen.

"We only had a few words about feelings about the club, about what we think about Stanko's future, but nothing in particular."
