Lucas Torreira will reportedly undergo a medical at Arsenal on Monday as he finally closes in on his move to London.

Torreira’s move has been expected to go through for some time but the deal was held up by the player’s participation at the World Cup.

Arsenal had hoped that they could do the medical out in Russia, something that regularly happens through international tournaments, but Torreira rejected that opportunity in order to stay focused on the task at hand.

Wilshere to have West Ham medical on Friday

  Wilshere to have West Ham medical on Friday Jack Wilshere will reportedly undergo a medical at West Ham on Friday as he closes in on a free transfer to the London Stadium. Football London report that the routine medical checks are scheduled in for Friday following talks with the player. Both West Ham and Turkish side Fenerbahce have been linked with a move for the player, but it appears that the Hammers have stolen the march in the race to sign the player. The Hammers will be keen to run the rule of Wilshere’s physical condition given his checkered injury history. The player has agreed a three-year contract to join West Ham that is believed to be worth around £100,000 a week. Reports have suggested that the contract does take into consideration his injury record and is structured to reflect that. Football London claim that the player is expected to join up with the rest of the squad on their pre-season training camp should everything go to plan.

The player has confirmed that he could not put the move off any longer. Speaking to Telenoche at the Airport on Sunday prior to his flight to England, the player spoke about the opportunity he has to join Arsenal.

“I would have been very happy to be able to return to Uruguay with my teammates, but this is a fantastic opportunity [to join Arsenal] and I do not want to waste it.”

Arsenal are reportedly set to go up against Liverpool in the race to sign Bernard on a free transfer this summer. The Gunners are seemingly out to add further attacking quality to their ranks this summer and according to claims from Premium Sport commentator Andersinho Marques, they are one of three potential destinations for Bernard. Twitter: O novo time do #Bernard será na Inglaterra só falta escolher, esses são os concorrentes: #Liverpool, #Ewerton e… (@Andersinho_ITA) Bernard, for a number of years, performed at a high level for Shakhtar Donetsk before deciding against renewing his deal at the club this summer. This means that potential suitors will have the opportunity to try and persuade Bernard to join them on a free transfer following the expiration of his contract in Ukraine.
