Arsenal have signed French midfielder, Matteo Guendouzi, from Lorient.
The 19-year-old started his career at the Paris Saint-Germain academy before joining Lorient’s academy in 2014. He 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.
”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,” head coach Unai Emery said.
Matteo will wear the number 29 shirt.
