Sampdoria star Lucas Torreira is edging closer to Arsenal move.

The Gunners are said to be harbouring a strong interest in the 22-year-old who started 36 Serie A matches last season, scored four goals and supplied one assist along the way.

The highly-rated South American is being identified as a top transfer target for Unai Emery who is looking to bolster the squad ahead of new season.

Torreira is under a £22 million release clause in his contract with the Italian side and Arsenal are willing to meet the price, according to Sky Sport Italia. The thing is, however, that Arsenal are trying to work out an instalment plan that would allow them to purchase the player this summer without taking a huge chunk out of their entire transfer budget.

Arsenal are set to sign Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos in a £16 million deal and are keen to preserve the transfer kitty for any other investments this summer.

Emery looks to significantly upgrade his squad as Arsenal prepare for the 2018/19 season with a clear intention of getting back into the Champions League following successive campaigns out of the elite competition.
