The London giants have entered into talks with Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira.

The Gunners are desperate for a makeover in the centre of midfield.

Arsenal’s recruitment leader Sven Mislintat has been given the duty to find diamonds in the rough that will help Arsenal return to the Champions League.

Torreira is a 22 year old player who is seen as one of Serie A’s most talented young midfielders.

He is a modern playmaker who can win the ball back as well as distribute it.
