Arsenal rush Torreira medical

Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira could have his Arsenal medical in Russia while Uruguay prepare for the World Cup.

Multiple reports maintain a deal is done for €30m, which is higher than his €25m release clause because it’ll allow the Gunners to spread the payment over three years.

According to Sportitalia, Arsenal don’t want to risk the price-tag rising further with a good performance in the tournament.

They could therefore send their medical staff to Russia over the next couple of days to complete the tests and get the contract signed.
