The offseason is here for Arsenal FC, and that means the Gunners squad won't be reunited again until training camp commences in July.

However, according to claims in Torreira's native Uruguay, the midfielder will now sign a deal with Arsenal before the start of the World Cup. The 22-year-old Torreira is a box-to-box guy who can also drop back in the middle of the park.

Leno has always been angling for a move away from Leverkusen, with the former German worldwide - who was left out of their World Cup squad - openly admitting his development as a world-class stopper has been halted somewhat and he would like a change of scenery.

No agreement but central midfield a priority & 22yo Uruguay int'l seen as ideal fit technically + financially.

Arsenal have already signed Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free and have agreed a deal worth around £16m with Borussia Dortmund for Sokratis Papastathopoulos which is expected to be confirmed soon.

On Wednesday, German newspaper Bild reported that the Gunners are in talks with Bayer Leverkusen over a move for goalkeeper Bernd Leno as coach Unai Emery searches for a long-term replacement for Petr Cech.

That could suit Arsenal, given that the Gunners are understood to have a more restricted transfer budget this summer following their lack of Champions League football.
