Torreira has been "close" to a move to north London all summer now, and while many outlets claimed that the deal would be completed before the tournament over in Russian Federation began, Arsenal fans have been forced to wait.

Lucas Torreira's father told Fox Sports Argentina.

The Uruguay global is now preparing to take on France in Friday's World Cup quarter-final.

Right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner joined on a free transfer after leaving Juventus, while goalkeeper Bernd Leno and centre-back Sokratis Papastahopoulos arrived from Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund respectively.

Arsenal begin their pre-season campaign at non-league Boreham Wood on July 14.
