Torreira was one of several players who impressed for Uruguay in Russian Federation this summer as La Celeste reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup before being eliminated by France.

There are doubts over Torreira's ability to adapt to a more physical league than Serie A, but his father Ricardo claims his son has a programme ready to help him settle in England.

Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero openly admitted last month: "Torreira left for €30m". "We do not look for buyers". We bet and we won, paying just €3m.
