Torreira has impressed after a successful season in Serie A, leading to both Arsenal and Napoli chasing his signature.

But according to Ornstein, Unai Emery's side are already in talks for the 22-year-old.

"As widely reported Arsenal in talks to sign Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira", he tweeted.

Arsenal are now attempting to negotiate the signing of Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund for £16m, so funds will begin to become incredibly tight if Arsenal were to then go on to trigger Torreira's release clause.

However, reports suggest Arsenal are looking to avoid paying the fee up front.

The Italian publication says Torreira has a release clause set at £22m [€25m] but Arsenal are willing to pay a premium so we can spread the payments out in several installments rather than pay his exit fee in one lump sum.

As mentioned, Napoli are also chasing Torreira this summer. Today, Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Lucas Torreira....

Arsenal's head of recruitment Sven Mislintat had always been scouting for players in these areas even before Wenger left and there is now firm interest in Totteira, who is 22 and has a £22 million release clause.
