LONDON: Arsenal have acquired a “very bright talent” in their latest signing Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira said the Premier League side’s manager Unai Emery on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old — who is Emery’s fourth signing since he was appointed Arsene Wenger’s successor in late May — cost a reported A£27million ($35.8million, 30.5million euros) to prise him away from Serie A outfit Sampdoria.

Torreira — the length of whose contract Arsenal did not reveal — performed well at the World Cup, playing in all their games and impressed national coach Oscar Tabarez enough to gain a place in the starting line-up in the 2-0 quarterfinal defeat by France last Friday.
