Lucas Torreira has agreed terms on a five-year contract with Arsenal.

According to the same story, Emery's past working relationship with N'Zonzi could give Arsenal the upper hand in the race to sign the former Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City midfielder.

Unai Emery has been in the market for a holding midfielder this summer after identifying it as an area that needed strengthening and Torreira emerged as a prime target with widespread speculation claiming Arsenal agreed a deal with Sampdoria shortly before the player flew out to Russian Federation last month.

Boris Johnson resigns as British foreign secretary
Davis, for his part, insisted that May's position as prime minister is still safe. "I don't think it's a survival issue at all". The British government says Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has resigned, amid a widening split in the Cabinet over Brexit .

The signing is also another step toward shoring up a defensive unit that struggled badly last season under Arsene Wenger, with Arsenal having already signed veteran right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer from Juventus, Borussia Dortmund centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno. "Welcome to Arsenal", the North London club tweeted.

During his two years at Sampdoria after joining from Pescara, Torreira made 74 appearances and scored four goals for the club.

Given that the No 3 shirt remains vacant, many expected Torreira to take that squad number but he will instead sport the jersey which was worn by Mesut Ozil in recent seasons.

Fernando Torres moves to Japan with Sagan Tosu
The majority of the other squad members are Japanese nationals, while there is an Italian manager in Massimo Ficcadenti. Iniesta joined Vissel Kobe at the end of last season.

"A midfielder with great quality, I have enjoyed watching his performances for Sampdoria in the past two seasons, and we all saw him do very well for Uruguay in the World Cup".

'He is a young player already with good experience, but who wants to keep on growing, ' said Emery.

Emery's first game in charge of Arsenal will be the pre-season game against Atletico Madrid on July 26.

The 19-year-old midfielder underwent a medical with the Gunners on Monday ahead of a £7 million move from Lorient.
