Talks start with Sevilla for N’Zonzi as Torreira deal gets closer


The Gunners have agreed a fee with Sampdoria for the midfielder and following Uruguay's exit from the World Cup, he is now free to become Arsenal's fourth signing of the summer.

Arsenal has already begun to make the changes required after legendary manager Arsene Wenger has finally left the club.

The UK Sun report further suggested that Juventus are equally plotting a deal to drag N'Zonzi to Italy while dangling the prospect of Champions League football next campaign.

Arsenal have already signed Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Bernd Leno and it's expected that Torreira will be unveiled next week.

The city has extended its pool hours and opened its seven cooling centres, which provide air-conditioned spaces and cold drinks. Mayor Valérie Plante urged people to check on vulnerable neighbours, including seniors.

Arsenal have returned to pre-season training ahead of one of the most important season's in the clubs recent history.

Steven N'Zonzi has always been told that he won't be leaving Sevilla for less than his 40 million euro release clause and Arsenal are reportedly in talks to sign the midfielder.

Amid all the usual reaction from Arsenal supporters, though, Telegraph journalist Jeremy Wilson gave his insight on Torreira's performance against France and N'Golo Kante. The Italian outfit set a price tag of £26 million for Torreira and the South American will be arriving at the Emirates Stadium for a medical soon enough.

In no way does this delay threaten the deal, which Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero practically confirmed when he spoke about Torreira having left for €30m last month.
