Torreira ready for 'scary' Arsenal move

Grant SmithJul 08, 2018

Arsenal have also been credited with an interest in signing Steven N'Zonzi from Sevilla over the past week but they have yet to make a formal approach for the former Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City man.

The publication says once Torreira seals his move he will then fly back to Montevideo in Uruguay to take a few days off before returning to London to begin his pre-season preparations with his new Arsenal team mates.

Arsenal have already signed Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Bernd Leno and it's expected that Torreira will be unveiled next week.

Midfield does appear to be an area Emery wants to strengthen. Jack Wilshere was released by the club at the end of his contract. Is Torreira more a cross between N'Golo Kante and ex-Gunner Santi Cazorla?

Standing at 6ft 5in tall, N'zonzi cuts an imposing figure, and would add some real steel to Tottenham's engine room. He uses his huge frame to great effect in midfield, shielding the ball, winning headers and brushing off oncoming opponents when he does opt to march forward.

The 23-year-old defender joined Arsenal from Southampton in 2014 and has made 83 appearances for the Gunners, while spending 2016-17 on loan at Middlesbrough.

Arsenal has reportedly agreed on a deal with Serie A club Sampdoria regarding a transfer for their robust midfielder and if everything goes according to plan, the club should unveil him by next week.
