Arsenal have also signed Switzerland defender Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer from Italian champions Juventus, while Germany goalkeeper Bernd Leno has agreed to join from Bayer Leverkusen.

Lucas Torreira's father has described his son's impending move to Arsenal as "scary", but insists the midfielder has a good support system in place, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The Uruguayan midfielder has been closing in on a move to the Gunners for some time but things were delayed by the World Cup.

Unai Emery is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him to the Emirates this summer.

"I was very happy to leave for Uruguay with my team-mates", Torreira told Telenoche, having helped his nation reach the quarter-finals in Russian Federation.

The Gunners did offer the player to undergo a medical in Russian Federation, but the player rejected as he wanted to commit wholly on national duty.

Speaking to Fox Argentina, Ricardo Torreira said his son's move to the Emirates Stadium would go through "if nothing odd happens".

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

The Lucas Torreira deal was awaiting confirmation from David Ornstein and it's great to see that it has finally come.

Now though, the player's father has confirmed that the Gunners are indeed on the brink of being able to conclude a deal to sign Torreira this summer.
