Arsenal And Tottenham Linked With Big Money Move For Barcelona Midfield Star

According to BBC Sport's David Ornstein, Arsenal are very close to finalising a deal for Samparodia and Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira with medical and other formalities imminent.

That claim is supported by Uruguayan outlet Referi who confirm the 22-year-old will not travel with the rest of his worldwide team-mates back to Uruguay and is instead travelling to London, via Moscow, today to complete his move to Arsenal.

Arsenal could conclude the Torreira deal early, depending on if the player flies to London from Russian Federation rather than later if he is to come to the city after visiting Uruguay.

The Gunners have been keen to land Torreira for some time now and it's believed that a deal worth around £25m has been agreed with Sampdoria.

And Torreira has confirmed his move to Arsenal, saying he couldn't turn down the Gunners after discovering their interest.

Steven N'Zonzi has always been told that he won't be leaving Sevilla for less than his 40 million euro release clause and Arsenal are reportedly in talks to sign the midfielder.

Next up for Federer is a third round tie against 39-year-old Croatian Ivo Karlovic or German world number 64 Jan-Lennard Struff. Katie Swan's Wimbledon run is over after she was beaten 0-6, 3-6 by 29th seed Mihaela Buzarnescu .

However, according to French outlet Le10 Sport, West Ham and Everton are also desperate to sign the former Stoke ace.

Emery has already shown his intention of changing Arsenal's fortune in the coming season and has no doubt that N'Zonzi's arrival would strengthen the team's midfield.

Lorient youngster Matteo Guendouzi will undergo a medical at the club on Monday, along with Lucas Torreira.

Unai Emery is a huge fan of Gomes, so much so that he's willing to sell one of Arsenal's star players, Aaron Ramsey, in order to bring in the central midfielder.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos has described himself as a "defender who likes to defender" following his move to Arsenal.
