One of Arsenal’s new signings has confirmed when he will be able to team up with the rest of the squad ahead of the start of the 2018/19 season.
The Gunners have done well so far with their spending in the transfer market, having secured the signings of several players – including Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Stephan Lichtsteiner – well before the upcoming season kicks off.
One of those new recruits is Lucas Torreira, who completed a move to the Emirates stadium after his national team Uruguay were knocked out of the World Cup by France.
Torreira has been spending time on holidays ever since but according to the Mirror, the 22-year-old has confirmed that he will be joining his new teammates for pre-season activities by next week.
Torreira’s transfer from Sampdoria cost Arsenal a fee in the region of £26.5millionas Unai Emery looks to strengthen his midfield.
The South American star was hailed as one of Uruguay’s best performers at the 2018 World Cup.
