Young French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi has joined Arsenal from Ligue 2 side Lorient for £8million.
Gunners boss Unai Emery said: “We are delighted Matteo is joining us. He is a talented young player and a lot of clubs were interested in him. He has big potential and gained good first-team experience last season with Lorient. He wants to learn and improve and will be an important part of our first-team squad.”
Meanwhile, Lucas Torreira intends to bring the feisty spirit of Uruguayan football to Arsenal after completing his £26million move from Serie A side Sampdoria.
Torreira, 22, told Arsenal’s official website: “We give all we have to our football, our jersey and our country. We do our best because every time we enter the pitch we represent our family and friends, the most important people for us.”
