And his current team, Sampdoria, agreed a £25million fee with Arsenal for a transfer during the competition in Russian Federation.

But Torreira is in no rush to finalise the switch while Uruguay remain in the hunt for World Cup glory, according to his father.

The BBC claims Emery could yet add an unheralded young player to the squad having missed out on PSG's Yacine Adli.

But the official confirmation of a transfer has been delayed by Torreira's global involvement with Uruguay in western Europe.

He looks set to be joined at the Emirates by the Lucas Torreira, the Uruguayan has diverted on his way back to South America from the World Cup in Russian Federation to complete his medical with the club.

Lucas Torreira's father told Fox Sports Argentina.

"Arsenal offered to do the medical examinations in Russian Federation but we decided against it because we felt it's inconvenient, it is not the right time".

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.

The Sampdoria midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium and is expected to be among Unai Emery's new signings ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

Once Torreira has completed a medical, he will become Arsenal's fourth signing of the summer transfer window.

Arsenal have already welcomed Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papastathopoulos to the club this summer.
