Gunning for Glory! Arsenal confirm their fourth signing of the summer

Arsenal news Jamie Redknapp hailed Unai Emery

Arsenal has been linked with Uruguay worldwide Lucas Torreira for about four weeks now but the gunners have finally completed the deal after many weeks of waiting but the Arsenal supporters today finally received the good news after the North Londoners posted on all their social networks the arrival of the defensive midfielder.

The transfer fee will be spread over three years with Arsenal waiting until after Uruguay were eliminated from the World Cup to complete the deal.

Torreira figures to replace Jack Wilshere who chose not to re-sign with his boyhood club after his contract expired, and instead joined West Ham on Monday.

He was warmly greeted by Unai Emery at London Colney as he arrived to complete the formalities, though he won't start training straight away as his season has only just drawn to a close.

While all eyes are on the World Cup, Arsenal have wasted no time in bringing in fresh blood for Emery's first season in charge of the Gunners.

What do you make of Arsenal's transfer business in this window so far?

Torreira becomes the club's fourth signing of the offseason, joining goalkeeper Bernd Leno and defenders Stephan Lichtsteiner and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Emery hailed the announcement and said: "In Lucas Torreira, we have signed a young player who is a very bright talent in the game".

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

'We welcome Lucas to Arsenal and look forward to him joining us soon for pre-season'.

The 22-year-old will add much-needed mobility and steel to Gunners' midfield.

Torreira joined Sampdoria two years ago and has developed in to one of the best defensive midfielders in Serie A so he should be a superb addition to the squad as we've badly needed someone to protect the defence in recent years.
