Lucas Torreira talks continue between Arsenal and Sampdoria

Arsenal transfer news live

The gunners are flying high in this summer transfer window as they have so far completed the signing of three players already and aren't done as they have now made a move for Sevilla midfielder Steven N'Zonzi.

"Unai Emery going in there, first home game at the Emirates, champions going there", Dickov told Sky Sports News.

New boss Unai Emery has been in the market for a defensive midfielder this summer and Torreira emerged as his prime target with widespread speculation claiming we were in advanced talks with Sampdoria before the World Cup started last month. Jack Wilshere was released by the club at the end of his contract.

Arsenal fans will be hoping to at least see their team break back into the top four next season after the Gunners finished in sixth place and without a trophy last term. He uses his huge frame to great effect in midfield, shielding the ball, winning headers and brushing off oncoming opponents when he does opt to march forward.

"There are many clubs who contacted us but we have given our word to Arsenal and are very satisfied with what they offered", he added.

France worldwide Steven N'zonzi has reportedly handed in a transfer request at Sevilla in order to push through a transfer to Arsenal.

He played some of the best football of his career under Emery, and the 29-year-old would be a useful addition. And at the base of Oscar Tabarez's recently introduced diamond formation, Lucas Torreira has been shimmering.
