Torreira is expected to join Arsenal to help solve the defensive midfield problem the squad has been facing over the last few seasons. His outstanding World Cup outing with Uruguay has drawn a lot of attention and many will be hoping this will help to kick start his Premier League career.
Arsenal start their Premier League campaign against defending champions, Manchester City and then play Chelsea away after that. This is a baptism of fire and a great chance for both Unai Emery and his new signings to show that they are ready for the challenge that lies ahead.
