Chelsea midfielder Cesc hails Arsenal target Torreira

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is impressed by imminent Arsenal signing Lucas Torreira.

The Sampdoria midfielder is set to join the Gunners in a €30m deal.

First talking about Rodrigo Bentancur, Cesc told BBC Sport: “I think he's one of the positives of the tournament, individually, so far.

“He's a young boy who signed for Juventus, he hasn't played a lot but you can see that he has a lot of personality, likes to play, he's not scared.

“And for a team like Uruguay that doesn't have a lot of 'ballers' or possession, they need a player like him.

“They also have Torreira on the bench who I really like for Sampdoria and they break lines."
