GETTYArsenal transfer news Unai Emery has started work with his Gunners squad

Arsenal have completed the signing of Sampdoria and Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira for a fee in the region of £26m.

We give honest thanks to the Uruguayan midfielder- 74 appearances and 4 goals as a blucerchiato- for the commitment shown in these two seasons and the greatest good luck for the rest of his career is wished by President Massimo Ferrero and all of the company.

"Sokratis and Lichtsteiner's age and experience balanced off with one (maybe two) exciting young players".

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 turns out Torreira has a rocket of a right foot and last season he scored a stunning free-kick from 35 yards against Chievo.
