Looks like we are signing him. very happy. Always said Coquelin and Cazorla combined would be a class player, and he's that.

Roll on the day Xhaka gets killed in a back alley.

I didn’t know much about him to be honest but the little research I did recently he will be a very good signing.

Saw this.

I'm happy with this signing. Looks very suited to Emery's desired style. Sampdoria was reputedly Italian football's most pressing team and he was integral to that. From the vids, he looks like a Duracell Bunny on Redbull with good dribbling and passing skills. We need a player like that, and we now have. Apparently its done and dusted, and he has agreed terms.

You have hit the nail on the head. He's actually both of those qualities combined, my only gripe is that we need to beef up height somewhere else in the team.

But this would be a better signing than ozil, sanchez or even Aubameyang cause we haven't had someone that could do both things in over a decade

Was given a Team of the Season card last FIFA as well as this one if that goes any way to prove he’s not a one season wonder.

Torreira isn't a done deal yet:

Arsenal are in advanced talks to sign Germany goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen. Not done but set to be decided today & expected 26-year-old will join #AFC - unclear which current GK would make way. Torreira pursuit ongoing - optimism but not done & #WorldCup delays it

Judging by Youtube highlights alone he looks small and really slow.

Size is a pbm but he is like rosicky, he's very sick over the first 2 yard and of course a lot better defensively than most of our players.

Ideally we would pair him up with a a more dominant physical CM and play ramsey as AM. We def have to make up for the lack of height somewhere.

Granit and Mo have signed long term contracts so don't expect any more in that area we need two central defenders no mention of them as yet.

He's such a nutter as well. I really think he's the answer, so long as we don't play him with Xhaka. Totally pointless if so.

Although they don't play in the same position, his national team teammate Nahitan Nandez looks like a better player and a better fit for Arsenal to me.

This would be an exciting line up.

...............Leno

Bellerin Sokratis Mustafi Monreal

……..….Torreira

Mkhitaryan...…….Ramsey

…………....Ozil

Lacazette……...Aubameyang

Not sure we'd win many matches with that, but it would be fun to watch 8 goal thrillers every game.

I agree. In possession that would be a class team. Ozil and Mhiki dropping wide when we lose it.

Lucas, who will wear the number 11 shirt, has been at the club for a medical and will now have a post-World Cup break and join up with the squad in early August.

Yup.

Remeber when Gallas was wearing no 10.

We need start everyone from scratch and go back to classic numbers.
