Lucas Torreira has spoken out ahead of his summer move to Arsenal.

"I was very happy to leave for Uruguay with my team-mates", Torreira told Telenoche, "but this is a good opportunity and I don't want to waste it".

Arsenal hope to complete Lucas Torreira deal next week.

Arsenal could have some competition in the race to sign Sevilla midfielder Steven N'Zonzi.

Interestingly, after quitting the English topflight in 2015 for £7million in the summer of 2015, N'Zonzi ejoyed a lift in his career as he is presently with the French national team preparing for the semifinal clash with Belgium at the ongoing World Cup in Russian Federation.

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

Lorient youngster Matteo Guendouzi will undergo a medical at the club on Monday, along with Lucas Torreira.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos has described himself as a "defender who likes to defender" following his move to Arsenal.

The Independent are reporting that Unai Emery is desperate to add Gomes to his midfielder at the Emirates, with the Portuguese star failing to land a regular slot in the Barcelona team over the past couple of years.

Arsenal have been linked with a shock move for French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, universally described as a "wonderkid" on account of being just 19.

It is claimed that Banega, who has a further two years left to run on his contract at Sevilla, has not even ruled out extending his deal for a further year, which would take him up to the age of 33.

They say the 19-year-old will become an Arsenal player in the coming days.
