Just in case that wasn't enough evidence for supporters, Torreira's own father has been doing little to keep the transfer a secret in recent interviews.

Arsenal look set to sign Torreira, who has started in Uruguay's last two World Cup games, from Sampdoria once the midfielder's campaign in Russian Federation is over. With one year left on his current contract, Lorient felt it was the right time to sell, and multiple clubs have been in talks with the player since January, according to RMC.

Torreira had postponed a decision on his future until after the World Cup and following Uruguay's exit from the competition, the deal has progressed.

Once Torreira has completed a medical, he will become Arsenal's fourth signing of the summer transfer window.

The Sampdoria midfielder's involvement at the World Cup ended on Friday as Uruguay crashed out at the quarter final stage following a 2-0 defeat against France.
