Arsenal Could Do Lucas Torreira Medical In Russia

Arsenal Could Do Lucas Torreira Medical In Russia

However, the source explained, since Thomas Tuchel was confirmed as Emery's successor, Henrique has pushed hard to get Adli to reconsider and finally convinced the teenager to continue the adventure that he started at the end of the 2017-18 season with the club that raised him.

Since replacing Arsene Wenger as manager, Unai Emery has already bolstered the defence with the free transfer of Stephan Lichsteiner and a £16 million deal for Borussia Dortmund centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos but adding physical presence in midfield is another priority.

Arsenal have also reached an agreement over a fee with Sampdoria and will be forking out a sum of €30m, which is €5m more than his stated release clause in his contract with the Serie A outfit.

The 22 year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates this summer with rumours that a deal of £26.4m has been agreed with Sampdoria.

As a result, Sport Italia (via Football Italia) claim that Arsenal are contemplating sending their own staff out to Russian Federation in order to get a medical done in the next few days.

Some reports have suggested that the Gunners have reached a £20m agreement with Leverkusen to sign the Germany global.

If Arsenal do decide to send their staff out, Torreira could well be playing for a new side this time next week.

The central midfielder is now away with the Uruguayan national team as they prepare for their first World Cup match tomorrow.
