Torreira looks all but set to complete his move to the Emirates in the near future following Uruguay's exit, with Unai Emery continuing to reconstruct his Arsenal squad.

According to BBC news, Lucas Torreira is all prepared to become Arsenal's fourth player signed in this summer transfer window.

The timing will depend on whether he flies straight from Russian Federation to London now Uruguay are out of the World Cup following their quarter-final defeat to France, or travels via his homeland.

He's the man who every Arsenal fan waits to hear from when it comes to transfers and he has finally spoken about Lucas Torreira.

Emery has quickly attained his targets this summer with Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papastathopoulos arriving at the club.

A potential move to the Gunners for Torreira could now be accelerated following Uruguay's elimination from the World Cup after they lost 2-0 to France in the quarter-finals on Friday. It's a big change [going to England] and we don't want to think about it yet because we're scared.

'The World Cup is important and being part of this squad meant a lot to me.

"There are many clubs who contacted us but we have given our word to Arsenal and are very satisfied with what they offered", he added.

"We go home with our heads held high because we knew how to leave everything until the end".

"There will be people that will accompany him", he told Teledoce.
