From the moment Unai Emery was appointed as the manager of Arsenal, we knew Arsenal would end up as one of the most active members of the transfer window.
Italian journalist Fabrazio Romano has thrown the Arsenal fan base into a frenzy with claims that Arsenal have sealed a deal for their transfer target Lucas Torreira, this is according to report.
The Gunners are reinforcing the defense line and they have been heavily linked with a move for Uruguayan central midfielder Lucas Torreira.
There were rife reports earlier this week that Arsenal had agreed to pay the valuation of Torreira which stands at €25 million. The Gunners fans have been sitting at the edge of their seat as they await the confirmation of the deal but it appears that we will wait no longer.
Romano revealed via his official Twitter that the deal is done when quizzed by a Gunners fan.
is done mate! But I don’t know when will be announced

Arsenal have lacked a marksman in the stead of Torreira. The 22-year-old star is adept at winning the ball and retaining possession, a technic that is apparently missing with some of the central midfielders of the Gunners.
Torreira will play in front of the back four and provide a shield for the defense line while feeding the creative midfielders of the club.
