Arsenal officially announced a deal for Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria.
The 22-year-old Uruguay midfielder had a fine World Cup in Russia and on Monday signed a long-term deal with Arsenal.
The Uruguay midfielder signed a long-term deal with the Gunners after an impressive season with the Serie A team.
He has been handed the number 11 shirt for the 2018/19 campaign and will join up with the squad in early August.
“In Lucas Torreira, we have signed a young player who is a very bright talent in the game,” Emery told the Arsenal website.
“A midfielder with great quality, I have enjoyed watching his performances for Sampdoria in the past two seasons, and we all saw him do very well for Uruguay in the World Cup.
“He is a young player already with good experience, but who wants to keep on growing. We welcome Lucas to Arsenal and look forward to him joining us soon for pre-season.”
