Arsenal step up N'Zonzi pursuit

Arsenal transfer news live

According to BBC Sport's David Ornstein, Arsenal are very close to finalising a deal for Samparodia and Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira with medical and other formalities imminent.

The Gunners have agreed a £26.5m (€30m) deal with Sampdoria for the midfielder.

Arsenal asked Torreira to fly straight from Russian Federation to England and, having touched down in London, he is expected to undergo a medical at London Colney on Monday.

The Sevilla midfielder has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League, with Arsenal leading the race to sign the France global.

Emery knows N'Zonzi well from his time in Seville, winning two Europa League trophies together at the Spanish side, and is a player the manager is said to be keen to reunite with in north London this summer.

Football London claim Torreira is now due to fly to London from Russian Federation to undergo his medical with Arsenal as Emery wants the transfer wrapped-up as quickly as possible with pre-season preparations already well underway.

Lorient youngster Matteo Guendouzi will undergo a medical at the club on Monday, along with Lucas Torreira.

The former PSG and Sevilla boss has already snapped up goalkeeper Bernd Leno, defender Stephan Lichtsteiner and Soktratis Papasthathopoulous.

Arsenal reportedly register an interest in signing Mexico worldwide Hirving Lozano from PSV Eindhoven during the summer transfer window.

Arsenal have been linked with a shock move for French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, universally described as a "wonderkid" on account of being just 19.

They say the 19-year-old will become an Arsenal player in the coming days.
