Arsenal looks set to sign Torreira, who has started in Uruguay's last two World Cup games, from Sampdoria once the midfielder's campaign in Russia is over.
The 22-year-old would become Unai Emery's fourth signing of the transfer window.
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.
"There will be people that will accompany him," he said.
"He won't be alone. It's a big change [going to England] and we don't want to think about it yet because we're scared.
"The truth is it's tough to manage the language, adapt to the [London] society and customs and at the same time not lose ours.
"But there's a whole programme getting readied for Lucas."
