Lucas Torreira: I'm living a dream at Arsenal

Lucas Torreira says he's living a dream at Arsenal.

The Uruguay midfielder has impressed since arriving last summer from Sampdoria.

He wrote for arsenal.com: "When I arrived at the club they told me that my closet in the locker room was going to be in between Laca and Mesut. I would have never imagined or dreamed of something like that.

"I am privileged to live all this at the age of 23.

"Unai Emery has also helped me a lot since I arrived. It´s very important that he can explain things to me in Spanish, especially at the beginning when it was all a bit more complicated due to the language. Unai and his staff can give me some directions in Spanish when needed, which is really helpful.

"My first target was to establish myself in the team. I feel like I've done that now. I wanted to understand the Premier League's style of playing, because this is very different to Italian football.

"We have big targets but my biggest target is to keep on improving as a player and as a person so my team-mates get to know the kind of person I am. I want to carry on working hard. There's no more important path than hard work."
