It did showcase the young Torreira to the world as he had an excellent World Cup especially shining in the second round against Portugal where he nullified arguably the world's best player in Cristiano Ronaldo.

He looks set to be joined at the Emirates by the Lucas Torreira, the Uruguayan has diverted on his way back to South America from the World Cup in Russian Federation to complete his medical with the club.

"It is as good as a fact that Lucas will join Arsenal", Ricardo Torreira told Fox Sports Argentina.

"It is all done in a draft and only missing the arrival of Lucas to England", he added.

Torreira has a £22.1m (€25m) release clause in his Sampdoria contract but Arsenal have made a decision to pay a premium so they can spread out the payments.

Jankto had previously been linked with Arsenal, but it now seems he will act as the replacement for Torreira, who is a reported target for Unai Emery in North London.

Although the Uruguay midfielder hasn't officially completed his move yet, all the indications suggest an announcement will come mere days after he returns from Russian Federation.

Emery has already brought in Greece defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Switzerland right-back Stefan Lichtsteiner and Germany goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

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

Arsenal begin their pre-season campaign at non-league Boreham Wood on July 14.
