Arsenal manager Unai Emery is pondering how to best spend a rather limited transfer budget compared to some of his Premier League counterparts.
The former PSG boss is looking to strengthen the Arsenal team quite considerably and Sampdoria’s Lucas Torreira is one man that could be about to sign for the club.
The 22-year-old midfielder has a £22m release clause in his contract and Emery is close to meeting it.
Torreira’s form has earned him a place in the Uruguay squad for the upcoming World Cup but Emery doesn’t want to wait around as good performances could attract interest from elsewhere.
Juventus and Napoli are two sides thought to be considering a move for the midfielder as is Everton.
But it is Arsenal who are favourites to land him as Emery looks to put his stamp on the squad.
