Torreira featured in all five of Uruguay's World Cup matches and started in their last three, including a 3-0 win over fellow quarter-finalists Russian Federation and a 2-1 round-of-16 win over Portugal.

Arsenal have completed the signing of Sampdoria and Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira for a fee in the region of £26m.

"In Lucas Torreira, we have signed a young player who is a very bright talent in the game", Arsenal head coach Unai Emery said in a statement.

Torreira chose not to undergo his medical during the tournament as he wanted to focus on representing Uruguay and he starred for the South American's as they reached the quarter-finals before being knocked out by France on Friday.

A native of Fray Bentos, Torreira made his senior debut for Serie B side Pescara in 2015, signing for Sampdoria the following summer.

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

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

It doesn't really matter what's written on the back of a player's jersey but the sight of a defensive midfielder like Torreira receiving the No 11, which is typically reserved for wingers, has not gone down well with some fans.

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

Guendouzi signed a four-year deal and was filmed penning his contract at the club's Colney training base under the watchful eye of Sven Mislintat and Team Sky's former commercial expert Huss Fahmy.

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