Torreira, 22, is close to sealing a switch to England after two seasons with Sampdoria in Serie A.

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

“But this is a good opportunity and I don’t want to waste it.”

Torreira is set to join Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papastathopoulos as off-season signings at Arsenal.
