Lucas Torreira is delighted with his move to Arsenal.
The former Sampdoria midfielder completed his switch on Tuesday.
Torreira said: "I feel very happy. I want to make the most of this opportunity life has given me. I am really looking forward to starting this new adventure.
"I feel calm. I am used to coping with this kind of thing in the best possible way. It's a very positive thing that people want to welcome me. It makes me feel comfortable. Now I am calm and I look forward to the future, which for sure will be very nice.
"I feel very proud of it, it all turned out great for me. I wasn't part of the team during the World Cup qualifiers, but eventually I made it to the World Cup. It was marvellous to experience World Cup moments with the Uruguay squad family. I tried to enjoy the World Cup as much as I could."
Torreira admits he appreciated the support of Arsenal fans during the World Cup.
"Yes, for a while I've been receiving loads of messages in my social media accounts. I guess it's all down to the fact there were talks of me moving to Arsenal even before the World Cup started. I am very happy and I hope I can meet all the fans very soon."
