A path has seemingly been cleared for the 22-year-old’s exit after Sampdoria reached a deal to sign Lokomotiv Zagreb’s Lovro Majer as his replacement.

Arsenal are trying to get their business done early, prior to the 2018 World Cup if possible.

However Torreira is in Uruguay’s squad for the tournament, and could be tied up for the next six weeks if his country progess to the latter stages.
