"In Lucas Torreira, we have signed a young player who is a very bright talent in the game", boss Emery added.

Torreira - the length of whose contract Arsenal did not reveal - performed well at the World Cup, playing in all their games and impressed national coach Oscar Tabarez enough to gain a place in the starting line-up in the 2-0 quarter-final defeat by France last Friday.

Torreira becomes Arsenal fourth signing of the summer.

Unai Emery has been in the market for a holding midfielder this summer after identifying it as an area that needed strengthening and Torreira emerged as a prime target with widespread speculation claiming Arsenal agreed a deal with Sampdoria shortly before the player flew out to Russian Federation last month.

Arsenal have already signed experienced Switzerland captain Stephan Lichtsteiner in a free transfer from Serie A giants Juventus earlier this summer to improve their options at full-back. "Welcome to Arsenal", the North London club tweeted.

However, four days on from their exit from the competition, Arsenal are now in a position to announce the arrival of the 22-year-old for an undisclosed fee.

Arsenal said Torreira will take over the No. 11 shirt, which was recently vacated by Mesut Ozil when he switched to No. 10 following Jack Wilshere's departure.

"He is a young player already with good experience, but who wants to keep on growing".

The Gunners thrashed out an agreement with the Italian Serie A side to seal the signature of the Uruguay global and he has arrived to bolster Unai Emery's options in midfield.
