Arsenal sign midfielder Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient

Lucas Torreira was unaware that Arsenal fans tracked his flight to London when he travelled to sign for the club in a reported £26million switch from Sampdoria.

Torreira, 22, has been heavily mooted to complete a move to north London from Sampdoria with the two clubs having agreed a fee during the World Cup, but the deal has finally gone through following Uruguay's quarter-final exit to France on Friday afternoon.

The talented midfielder becomes Emery's fifth major signing of the summer following the arrivals of Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis, Bernd Leno and Lucas Torreira - who completed his move from Sampdoria on Tuesday.

While Chinyere wished him "immense success" during his time at the Emirates, Mario Piso already guaranteed a "great 2018/19" season.

Emery, preparing for his first season as Arsenal manager, said: 'We are delighted Matteo is joining us.

Guendouzi told arsenal.com: "It's something I'm immensely proud of".

"I want to become part of the club's history and to achieve great things here".

'I want to win titles, titles, titles.

Today, Arsenal have signed Matteo Guendouzi...

Ozil has chose to switch to the No 10 shirt which was freed up when Jack Wilshere left Arsenal to move to West Ham.

As well as bringing in a quartet of new signings, Arsenal also extended the contracts of Calum Chambers, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Granit Xhaka in recent weeks, while Mohamed Elneny has also agreed to fresh terms since Wenger stepped aside at the end of last season.

The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes. France under-21 midfielder Matteo Guendouzi is expected to have a medical at the club in the coming days.
