England are through to the World Cup semi-final but Arsenal fans are all glad that Uruguay have been knocked out and are now leaving Moscow. Most of the team are flying to Montevideo for the homecoming celebrations, but the Uruguayan Federation have confirmed that Torreira will not be on the plane.
Lucas himself was again asked why he didn’t have his Arsenal medical while he was in Russia and the midfielder replied: “Yes, we could have done things differently, but I did not want to think about other things,”
“The World Cup is important and being part of this squad meant a lot to me.
“But now I have more time my future will be very clear.
“The important thing is that I’m happy to have been part of this squad and this World Cup, so I thank all the people who accompanied us.”
Meanwhle a freind of Lucas has tweeted that he is on his way to Arsenal…..

This translates as… “Good friends of the Arsenal get ready. Because Lucas Torreira travels to London for his medical check-up and contract. It is scheduled to arrive in Uruguay on Thursday. In other words, to England the arrival will be imminent to be attentive. I hug all gunners and trolls.”
So, now we know! Torreira will be a Gunner by Thursday if he intends to fly back home for his holiday on that day. No more waiting!
