Gunners bosses were willing to fly medical staff out to Russian Federation to put the 22-year-old through his paces.

The Lucas Torreira deal was awaiting confirmation from David Ornstein and it's great to see that it has finally come.

Torreira will fly direct to London from Moscow after Uruguay were knocked out of the World Cup on Friday. But with Uruguay heading home, the Sampdoria man is now clear to complete his £25m move to the Emirates.

The Gunners did offer the player to undergo a medical in Russian Federation, but the player rejected as he wanted to commit wholly on national duty. He, alongside the rest of his Uruguayan teammates, finds himself staring at the chance of playing in the World Cup semi final should his nation get the better of France on Saturday afternoon, but a move to England is weighing on his mind.

Guendouzi, who made 21 club appearances last summer, is reportedly set to sign a four-year deal with the Gunners.

Here's Why Trump Is Hiking Chinese Tariffs To 25%
"They better not underestimate President Trump's determination to go further", Larry Kudlow said on Bloomberg Television. For example, he claimed that China was financing advertisements to convince Americans to stop Mr Trump's trade agenda.

Torreira has a £22.1m (€25m) release clause in his Sampdoria contract but Arsenal have chose to pay a premium so they can spread out the payments.

Emery is unlikely to add any more first team players to his squad unless other players leave, with Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Berndt Leno and Stephan Lichtsteiner all arriving in the past few weeks. "We placed a bet and we won, paying just €3m".

"La Samp doesn't sell players unless there are excellent offers", Ferrero said.

"Now the money that comes in will be used to keep the club going".
