Arsenal agree deal to sign Lucas Torreira

Arsenal agree deal to sign Lucas Torreira

Arsenal's head of recruitment Sven Mislintat had always been scouting for players in these areas even before Wenger left and there is now firm interest in Totteira, who is 22 and has a £22 million release clause.

The Sampdoria midfielder has interested a number of clubs this summer, including Serie A giants Napoli, but it is Arsenal who have now moved to the front of the race for his signature. The midfielders release clause is set at around £22m but we've seemingly agreed to pay a premium in order to pay the fee over several installments rather than one lump sum.

Sky Sport Italia, as quoted by Metro, is claiming that the Gunners are keen on a deal to land the 22-year-old midfielder this summer and are willing to match the Italian club's valuation of the player.

The Gunners have signed Swiss defender Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free from Juventus, while a move for Borussia Dortmund's Greece centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos will be confirmed in July. This could prove to be a shrewd piece of business for Arsenal if they were able to pull off the deal and it would allow Emery to continue his pursuit of other players to strengthen the current side.

Leno has always been angling for a move away from Leverkusen, with the former German global - who was left out of their World Cup squad - openly admitting his development as a world-class stopper has been halted somewhat and he would like a change of scenery.
