Lucas Torreira’s Father: Lucas Rejected Arsenal’s Medical In Russia

Chambers joined Arsenal in 2014 and has since made 83 appearances, as well as having a successful loan spell at Middlesbrough in 2016-17 and picking up three England caps.

Ricardo, the father of Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira, has admitted that his son is set to complete a "scary" transfer to Arsenal, after the 2018 World Cup.

The 23-year-old - whose global career has stalled since joining Arsenal from Southampton in 2014 with the last of his three caps coming four years ago - says he is keen to prove he is worthy of a regular run out for the first team to new manager Unai Emery.

However, the Spaniard is also in the market for a defensive midfielder as neither Granit Xhaka nor Aaron Ramsey are capable of protecting the back four and Torreira has emerged as a prime target in recent weeks with widespread reports suggesting Arsenal are closing-in on a deal to sign the South American.

Torreira is thought to have agreed a move to the Emirates but has yet to undergo his medical at the club.
