Sampdoria and Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira confirms that he is on the verge of joining Arsenal and will undergo a medical ahead of completing the £25m move.

Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira has confirmed that he is on the verge of joining Arsenal this summer.

The Gunners have been locked in talks with Sampdoria for a number of weeks, but Uruguay's exit from the World Cup is understood to have accelerated the deal.

A £25m fee has been agreed between the two parties, and the 22-year-old has now confirmed that he is heading to London to undergo a medical ahead of completing the switch.

"I would have been very happy to be able to return to Uruguay with my teammates, but this is a fantastic opportunity [to join Arsenal] and I do not want to waste it," Torreira told Telenoche.

Torreira is expected to become Arsenal's fourth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Sokratis Papasthathopoulos.
