Fabrizio wrote on his Twitter account; “Lucas Torreira will have medicals with Arsenal soon, the deal is completed. And Arsenal will finalize Sokratis Papastathopoulous deal too!”
Arsenal fans are surprised with how their new manager Unai Emery has been handling the transfers this summer because their previous boss, Arsene Wenger used to wait until the last few days of the transfer window to finally focus on transfers.
