Almost Done: Arsenal have an agreement in place with Serie A giants to sign attacking midfielder

According to the same story, the clause now stands at €25m and Arsenal would have to meet that figure to force Sampdoria to sell the midfielder.

Arsenal are in talks with Sampdoria over the proposed £22million transfer of Lucas Torreira.

The 22-year-old has developed in to one of the best defensive midfielders in Serie A since joining Sampdoria from Pescara two years ago and he's been named in the Uruguay squad ahead of this summers World Cup finals in Russian Federation.

Arsenal are believed to be locked in negotiations with Sampdoria, and Gianluca Di Marzio provided a fresh update today.

At the time of his disappearance, the Air Force said Hughes had a "Top Secret/Single Scope Background Investigation" clearance. In retrospect, William Howard Hughes, Jr . was maybe not the kind of guy you wanted to guard your national security.

The 22-year-old scored 4 goals and created one assist in 36 appearances for the Italian club, who finished in mid-table last season.

The Sampdoria ace has a €25m (£22m) release clause, however, it's understood the Serie A club have asked Arsenal to pay €30m and spread the cost over several years.

Any deal for Torreira will likely not be done until Uruguay's World Cup campaign finishes.

Since Unai Emery replaced Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium, the Spaniard has been linked with a wide range of fresh faces and it appears that a defensive-minded midfielder could be on his radar.
