REVEALED: Torreira, Sokratis now just medicals away from Arsenal deals

Lucas Torreira is now just a medical away from completing his move to Arsenal.

A £26m fee has been agreed with Sampdoria for the midfielder.

He is currently away in Russia at the World Cup with Uruguay, who are through to the round of 16.

Torreira's switch to the Emirates, though, is just a matter of time as the deal is “completed".

The 22-year-old could feature for Uruguay when they take on Portugal on Saturday night.

Torreira will more than likely have his medical once the South Americans' tournament is over.

Italian reporter Fabiano Romano wrote on Twitter: “Lucas Torreira will have medicals with Arsenal soon, the deal is completed. And Arsenal will finalize Sokratis Papastathopoulous deal too!"
