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

Torreira has been "close" to a move to north London all summer now, and while many outlets claimed that the deal would be completed before the tournament over in Russian Federation began, Arsenal fans have been forced to wait.

The 22-year-old's country are in the quarter-finals of the competition and he will hope to be involved when they take on France in Nizhny Novgorod today (3pm).
