  • Unai Emery Arsenal Emil Forsberg Matteo Guendouzi

The 22-year-old was outstanding in Uruguay's run to the quarter-finals in Russian Federation and joins on a five-year-deal.

We give honest thanks to the Uruguayan midfielder- 74 appearances and 4 goals as a blucerchiato- for the commitment shown in these two seasons and the greatest good luck for the rest of his career is wished by President Massimo Ferrero and all of the company.

Given that the No 3 shirt remains vacant, many expected Torreira to take that squad number but he will instead sport the jersey which was worn by Mesut Ozil in recent seasons. While uncertainty lingers at Chelsea, Arsenal's other top six rivals have a wealth of stars still featuring at the World Cup.

"[Guendouzi] has big potential and gained good first team experience last season with Lorient", said Emery. It's a very positive thing that people want to welcome me.

'Leaving Sunderland after 10 years, the club I love and support was a very hard decision.

Kavanaugh was a frequent opponent of President Barack Obama's EPA and sought to limit or throw out many environmental regulations. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1987, and received his Juris Doctor from Yale Law School in 1990.

Torreira, 22, becomes Arsenal's fourth acquisition since Unai Emery was appointed as head coach in May.

A native of Fray Bentos, Torreira made his senior debut for Serie B side Pescara in 2015, signing for Sampdoria the following summer.

The Gunners have also brought in goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, defender Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus and defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund. I hope I can do great things here. Now I am calm and I look forward to the future, which for sure will be very nice.

Ozil has chose to switch to the No 10 shirt which was freed up when Jack Wilshere left Arsenal to move to West Ham.

The player will not arrive until next month following a period of rest after the World Cup.
