Heung-Min Son

Yes, according to German media outlet Sport1, the Germany slayer could be a transfer target for the Gunners, Manchester United and Liverpool this summer.

Torreira should be an excellent addition

Torreira is a highly-rated young central midfielder, who is currently at the World Cup with Uruguay in Russia. The 22-year-old has been an almost ever-present for a solid Sampdoria side in recent seasons.
