The Guardian say that the Gunners had officials in Milan yesterday to discuss personal terms with the midfielder's representatives having reached an agreement with Sampdoria.

As such, the north London club are thought to have settled upon a deal which sees them pay slightly more than the €25m (£21.9m) release clause in Torreira's contract.

As noted in the report, both Napoli and Atletico Madrid have been linked with a move for the Germany global, but Arsenal appear poised to win the race for his signature.

Arsenal are in talks to sign Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira from Serie A side Sampdoria.

Paris Saint-Germain's last-ditch attempt to prevent youth academy graduate Yacine Adli from signing a professional contract with Arsenal has succeeded, with the 17-year-old now set to pen senior terms with his formative club, a source close to PSG has revealed to ESPN FC.

Torreira is Arsenal's main central midfield target and they are hoping to reach an agreement on a deal for the Uruguay global, who has a €25 million release clause.

Arsenal are set to capture the signature of Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, according to reports in Germany.

Since replacing Arsene Wenger as manager, Unai Emery has already bolstered the defence with the free transfer of Stephan Lichsteiner and a £16 million deal for Borussia Dortmund centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos but adding physical presence in midfield is another priority.
