Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira finally agreed to fly to Turkey after agreeing terms with Galatasaray.

The transfer will go ahead for a reported €6-7m.
Torreira has agreed to fly out to Istanbul in the next few days and is expected to sign a three-year contract with one year extension.
The Uruguay international did not board his flight earlier in the week despite Arsenal and Galatasaray agreeing terms.
Torreira wanted more time before making a decision.
However, after the final round of talks in Milan, Italy with his agent Pablo Bettancour and Galatasaray officials an agreement was reached yesterday.
Arsenal signed Torreira for £22m from Sampdoria in 2018.
Torreira made 89 appearances in his first two seasons at the North London club but spent the past two seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid and Fiorentina respectively.
The 26-year-old will be joining fellow Uruguay international teammate Fernando Muslera at Galatasaray.
Torreira will probably miss the opening game of the season on the weekend against Antalyaspor.
