Arsenal agree deal to sign Lucas Torreira

Arsenal have continued their attempt to add greater steel through the spine of the squad by holding talks over the potential signing of Uruguay and Sampdoria holding midfielder Lucas Torreira.

And according to ESPN, Arsenal have completed a deal to sign Greek worldwide Papastathopoulos.

According to the same story, the Uruguayan has a €25m (£22m) release clause in his contract with the Italian club, but the Serie A side have asked Arsenal to pay €30m and instead spread the payments out over several years.

Unai Emery is searching for a new No 1 this summer to replace Petr Cech and has identified the German star as his main target.

The 26-year-old will be Arsenal's second signing of the summer, joining Stephan Lichtsteiner. Well, here are three players who I believe will most heavily feel the force of his signing.

Leno has always been angling for a move away from Leverkusen, with the former German worldwide - who was left out of their World Cup squad - openly admitting his development as a world-class stopper has been halted somewhat and he would like a change of scenery.

The lack of Champions League football, in addition to big spending on transfers and wages over the last two years, has left Emery with a modest budget with which to improve his squad.
