Arsenal have reportedly struck a €30m deal for Lucas Torreira but are struggling to agree personal terms with the Sampdoria midfielder.
According to Sport Mediaset, Arsenal are prepared to pay €5m more than Torreira’s release clause so they can spread the cost.
However, the broadcaster warns ‘there’s still no agreement’ on a contract for the Uruguayan.
This should come as no surprise, given Napoli were linked with the 22-year-old for some time yet were unable to agree personal terms.
