  • Arsenal sign Uruguay's Torreira for $48m

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has hailed the "great quality" of Lucas Torreira after the midfielder completed a move from Sampdoria.

Torreira gives Arsenal a natural ball-winner who can help shield the back four effectively - a type of player they have missing recently.

Arsenal are believed to have paid the Serie A side somewhere in the region of £26.4 million to secure the player's services this summer.

Arsenal have been waiting to seal the deal due to Torreira being at the World Cup in Russian Federation as part of the Uruguay squad.

Lucas Torreira has signed for Arsenal.

Gunners supporters followed developments in Torreira's transfer closely and details of which flight the 22-year-old boarded to London were shared on social media before his arrival at Emirates Stadium.

Now, it has been revealed that Torreira will wear the number 11 shirt at Arsenal, previously occupied by Mesut Özil who switched to 10.

The defensive midfielder featured in all five of his country's World Cup matches in Russian Federation and becomes Unai Emery's fourth summer signing, joining Stephen Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

"We have signed a young player who is a very bright talent in the game", said the new Arsenal boss.

Torreira claimed that he is looking forward to his new "adventure" in England.

Arsenal arguably haven't had a decent defensive midfielder since the Invincible days of Gilberto Silva, but Emery and the new recruitment team around him look to have got themselves a top-class performer. It's a very positive thing that people want to welcome me.

Arsenal are also close to completing another deal to land France Under-20 worldwide Matteo Guendouzi.

Emery will take charge of his first game since replacing Wenger when Arsenal XI face Boreham Wood in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.
