“Welcome to Arsenal, Matteo Guendouzi” – Arsenal complete fifth summer transfer

Arsenal have completed their fifth deal of the summer with the signing of young French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi who joined the club from Ligue 2 side Lorient for an undisclosed fee.

The 19-year-old started his career at the Paris Saint-Germain academy before joining Lorient’s academy in 2014.

Matteo made his first-team debut for Lorient aged 17 in October 2016 and went on to make 30 appearances. He is a France youth international, having represented them at under-18, under-19 and under-20 level.

Head coach Unai Emery said:

“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.”

Matteo will wear the number 29 shirt – and you can get your ‘Guendouzi 29’ shirt here.

The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
