The father of Lucas Torreira has said a move to London "truly scares us" but his son "is not going to be alone" if a transfer to Arsenal goes through.
Torreira, 22, will undergo his medical before putting pen to paper on a long-term contract.
A defensive midfielder, Torreira is the kind of player Arsenal have lacked in recent seasons.
He told Telenoche: 'I would have been very happy to be able to return to Uruguay with my team-mates, but this is a fantastic opportunity [to join Arsenal] and I do not want to waste it'.

Emery has also brought in seasoned Swiss defender Stephan Lichtsteiner and goalkeeper Bernd Leno since becoming the surprise choice to succeed Wenger after the Frenchman brought to an end two decades in charge.
Arsenal have been linked with a shock move for French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, universally described as a "wonderkid" on account of being just 19. However, the deal is believed to keep him at the Emirates until 2022, one year longer than a previous extension he signed last year.
