‘Torreira’s Arsenal medical after WC’

Lucas Torreira’s father has confirmed that the Sampdoria midfielder will undergo a medical with Arsenal after the World Cup.

Torreira is set to join Arsenal in a €30m deal, and his dad expects the transfer to be completed once Uruguay’s participation in Russia is over.

“I want the best for my son and I also know that Arsenal showed a lot of interest in him,” Ricardo told Radio Crc.

“It’s not done, neither is it official, because he hasn’t signed anything, but there’s a great chance that Lucas’ future will be in England.

“There was no problem in the negotiations, and the latest is that as soon as the World Cup ends, he’ll go to London for a medical.”
