Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira has dropped a huge hint that he is close to joining Arsenal during this summer’s transfer window.
The Uruguay international has been tipped to seal a £26m move to the Emirates Stadium in recent days and Torreira has now appeared to hint over the deal by linking an Instagram post from his friend.
In response to this, Twitter user @OsmanZtheGooner questioned Torreira’s same friend regarding the switch and although there was not a replay, she dropped a potential hint by linking the question.
Torreira is widely expected to leave Sampdoria in the present transfer window with the club’s president already confirming that the Uruguayan has been sold.
Nonetheless, the Gunners supporters are waiting for anything formal to confirm the deal, though the social media interaction suggests that an announcement may be on the brink.
Torreira is presently with his nation at the summer World Cup finals in Russia and so far, he has managed two substitute appearances off the bench.
Uruguay’s final game versus Russia may be decide who comes first in Group A and it will be interesting to see whether Torreira is backed to make his maiden start by Oscar Tabarez.
