Lucas Torreira has revealed that he received a surprise phone call from Arsenal manager Unai Emery before Uruguay's World Cup campaign.

However, today the club has announced that they signed another central midfielder, Matteo Guendouzi.

The 19-year-old looked to have settled in quickly as he was seen sharing a joke with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on a much cooler day at London Colney.

"Arsenal have always been the team closest to my heart and a side I've wanted to join since I was a child", Guendouzi told Arsenal's official website. "Winning silverware, as I said, is very important to me and winning things here at Arsenal would be incredible".

Both Dortmund and Napoli would have been able to offer the player Champions League football, something Arsenal are unable to do, but he has chosen the Premier League.

"He is a talented young player and a lot of clubs were interested in him". I want to become part of the club's history and to achieve great things here.

"I'm a player who likes to get on the ball and use it. I want to win titles, titles, titles", said Guendouzi, who will wear #29 with the Gunners.

"Playing the ball, linking up with my team-mates, battling for the team".

"I'd say my main quality is keeping the ball and my passing".
