Arsenal news Jamie Redknapp hailed Unai Emery

Spanish publication Marca says that Napoli were soon completing the signing of Lucas Torreira but the deal didn't go through after the gunners came into the race for the Uruguay worldwide with a better offer which was to see the defensive midfielder earn £1.7million a year in wages if he comes to the Emirates Stadium.

As reported by The Sportsman yesterday, Torreira was due to have a medical alongside the France Under-20 global Matteo Guendouzi before confirming his move to the Emirates, and the two clubs have made the deal official via social media today.

He will wear the No.11 shirt in north London, and will link up with his new team-mates following a post-World Cup break.

Arsenal teased the announcement with a social media video before announcing the deal themselves on Monday.

It referenced the lion tattoo he has on his arm and carried the tagline "Time for Torreira".

Torreira, 22, played at the base of Sampdoria's midfield diamond last season and is expected to bring bite and defensive nous to Unai Emery's team.

During his two years at Sampdoria after joining from Pescara, Torreira made 74 appearances and scored four goals for the club.

Torreira is unlikely to be the Gunners' final signing of the summer, with the club also pursuing a deal for Lorient's Matteo Guendouzi. A midfielder with great quality, I have enjoyed watching his performances for Sampdoria in the past two seasons, and we all saw him do very well for Uruguay in the World Cup.

"We welcome Lucas to Arsenal and look forward to him joining us soon for pre-season".
