Lucas Torreira has been spotted en-route to London to complete his Arsenal medicals after Uruguay were eliminated from the World Cup.

Seeing the South American knocked out of the World Cup would never to be nice to their fans but there probably more than Arsenal supporters hoping to see France kicked them out of the tournament on Friday.

Torreira has been linked with Arsenal through the summer and talks about his move to the club had stalled with the player claiming he needs to focus on his side participation at the on-going World Cup competition.

Since his side are now out of the competition, by 2-0 defeat to France, it seems that Arsenal fans dream are progressing once again.

On Sunday, the South-American country only announced that 17 of their players out of possible 23 had left Russia and were flying back home to Montevideo.

Just like you would have thought, Torreira was not part of the returning team and according to reports, the Sampdoria midfielder is currently en-route to London to complete his Arsenal medicals and fans were quick to enter social media Twitter to welcome the midfielder to the club.

Some went has far as “welcoming him to Arsenal” and some say, Torreira’s coming home. Here are some of the best selected Tweets:

Torreira was excellent during the World Cup and showcased many of the traits which have been missing from Arsenal’s midfield in the last decade. Let’s hope he can bring that same performance level to the Premier League.
