The Uruguay international becomes the club's fourth signing of the summer and will reinforce Unai Emery's midfield at the Emirates Stadium Arsenal have confirmed the signing of midfielder Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria.
The Uruguay international completes his move to the Premier League club following the completion of the 2018 World Cup, with his country reaching the quarter-finals.
Goal understands that the Gunners have paid £26 million (€30m/$34m) for the 22-year-old, who becomes the club's fourth signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Berndt Leno and Stephan Lichtsteiner.
Head coach Unai Emery said: “In Lucas Torreira, we have signed a young player who is a very bright talent in the game. A midfielder with great quality, I have enjoyed watching his performances for Sampdoria in the past two seasons, and we all saw him do very well for Uruguay in the World Cup.
"He is a young player already with good experience, but who wants to keep on growing.
"We welcome Lucas to Arsenal and look forward to him joining us soon for pre-season.”
Torreira, who has only won eight caps for his country, featured in every game as Oscar Tabarez's side reached the quarter-finals, where they were beaten 2-0 by semi-finalists France.
