Lucas Torreira was unaware that Arsenal fans tracked his flight to London when he travelled to sign for the club in a reported £26million switch from Sampdoria.

The 22-year-old was outstanding in Uruguay's run to the quarter-finals in Russian Federation and joins on a five-year-deal.

Unai Emery had already secured the services of Stephan Lichtsteiner , Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papastathopoulos , while the most recent signing of Uruguay star Lucas Torreira will also strengthen a previous area of weakness for the Spaniard's side.

In a brief statement announcing his departure, the Serie A club wished Torreira the "greatest good luck for the rest of his career".

Former FC Lorient midfielder Matteo Guendouzi is delighted with his move to Arsenal.

Arsenal arguably haven't had a decent defensive midfielder since the Invincible days of Gilberto Silva, but Emery and the new recruitment team around him look to have got themselves a top-class performer.

"I feel calm", Torreira said in his first interview with the club's media team.
