Arsenal 'in for Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira'

Lucas Torreira

The 22-year-old is now away with the Uruguay national team in preparation for the World Cup but it seems that the Gunners are already on the case.

Sampdoria sporting director Carlo Osti told Italian broadcaster Rai Sport earlier this week: "Torreira has a €25m (£22m) release clause, everyone knows that".

According to the same story, the clause now stands at €25m and Arsenal would have to meet that figure to force Sampdoria to sell the midfielder.

However, the Italian publication suggests that any proposed deal is being complicated by Torreira's agent as he's reportedly demanding hefty fees to negotiate the transfer to north London.

Jones mentioned the recent free signing of Stephan Lichtsteiner and an agreed deal to sign defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund, said to cost around £16 million, which will be confirmed in July.

The Uruguayan prospect will feature for his country in the World Cup later this week, having been named in the 23-man squad and will be hoping to appear in La Celeste's opening game against Egypt this Friday. The Greek is due to sign a three-year contract with the Gunners with an announcement expected at the end of the month.
