Arsenal announce Guendouzi signing


Matteo Guendouzi has joined Arsenal from Ligue 2 side Lorient for an undisclosed fee.

A product of the Lorient academy, the 19-year-old made his first team debut for the club in October 2016 and went on to make 30 appearances for the French side, while he has represented his country at under-18, under-19 and under-20 level.

He has spoken of his immense pride at moving to the Emirates where he will wear the number 29 shirt.

"It’s something I’m immensely proud of. Arsenal have always been the team closest to my heart and a side I’ve wanted to join since I was a child," he told the club's official website.

"It gives me great pride – it’s incredible. I hope I can do great things here. It doesn’t get any better than coming to a club like this, with so much history, like Arsenal. I’m hugely proud."

"My hope is to become a top player here at Arsenal. A lot of great players have played here. I want to become part of the club’s history and to achieve great things here.

"I want to win titles, titles, titles. I want to establish myself here, which would be amazing. Winning silverware, as I said, is very important to me and winning things here at Arsenal would be incredible."

Head coach Unai Emery added: “We are delighted Matteo is joining us. He is a talented young player and a lot of clubs were interested in him. He has big potential and gained good first-team experience last season with Lorient. He wants to learn and improve and will be an important part of our first-team squad.”
