Arsenal are expected to complete a deal to sign the player from Sampdoria and wanted to speed up the process by carrying out a medical in Russian Federation, something that is very common during global tournaments.
The Uruguay global has been strongly linked with a move to The Emirates this summer but the transfer has not gone through as he continues to represent his country at the World Cup in Russian Federation.
Unai Emery is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him to the Emirates this summer.
But the official confirmation of a transfer has been delayed by Torreira's global involvement with Uruguay in western Europe.
Lucas Torreira will fly to London today to complete his Arsenal transfer, according to reports in Uruguay.
It is as good as a fact that Lucas will join Arsenal.
The Gunners did offer the player to undergo a medical in Russian Federation, but the player rejected as he wanted to commit wholly on national duty.
"The deal is virtually done and only the arrival of Lucas is remaining", he added.
But he also said that the deal is on and the 22 year old will eventually be joining Arsenal as soon as the campaign ends for Uruguay.
The Gunners have already snapped up right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner, goalkeeper Bernd Leno and centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos.
Torreira was one of several players who impressed for Uruguay in Russian Federation this summer as La Celeste reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup before being eliminated by France.
