I will decide on Arsenal move shortly - Torreira

The transfer - rumoured to be in the £26 million region - was in advanced stages last month but hit delays when Torreira joined up with the Uruguayan squad for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

The BBC claims Emery could yet add an unheralded young player to the squad having missed out on PSG's Yacine Adli.

Jakub Jankto has joined Sampdoria from Udinese, a move which seems to be paving the way for Lucas Torreira's move to Arsenal.

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.

The Gunners did offer the player to undergo a medical in Russian Federation, but the player rejected as he wanted to commit wholly on national duty.

Faucher writes that as that happens, job growth will slow down because businesses will find it more hard to recruit new hires. Nonbank mortgage lenders and brokers employed 345,400 people during the month, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Unai Emery has also been recently linked with a move for Barcelona's Andre Gomes and would reportedly be open to sanctioning several sales to afford the £30m-rated midfielder. The 22-year-old defensive midfielder shone during Uruguay's World Cup campaign, helping his nation to the quarter-finals before their exit against France on Friday afternoon.

Now though, the player's father has confirmed that the Gunners are indeed on the brink of being able to conclude a deal to sign Torreira this summer.

"The deal is virtually done and only the arrival of Lucas is remaining".

Right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner joined on a free transfer after leaving Juventus, while goalkeeper Bernd Leno and centre-back Sokratis Papastahopoulos arrived from Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund respectively.
