This transfer window seems to be a bumper one for Arsenal fans as new manager Unai Emery has completed his fifth transfer for the club, bringing in French talent Matteo Guendouzi.
The transfer was officially confirmed by Arsenal. The 19-year-old signs from Ligue 2 side FC Lorient, but who is this unknown player?
Guendouzi often plays as a defensive midfielder and has made 21 appearances for his club last season.
It is expected that the young player will not be in the first team immediately, but with the League cup and the Europa League next season, it looks very likely the fans will get to see Guendouzi shine next season.
Standing at just over 6 feet tall, the young defensive player can offer options in aerial duels, adding to the increasing number of options that the Gunners have at set pieces next season.
The player will wear the no.29 shirt and told the club:
“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. 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.”
The French signing has already joined training with the first team, and has been seen getting along with several other French players such as Alexandre Lacazette and Jeff Reine-Adelaide.
The player joins the club in the midst of another young player potentially joining the North London side, with 21 year old Joel Lopez saying goodbye to Barcelona, and lining up a move to the Gunners.
It is shaping up to be a massive transfer window for the Arsenal, many fans are starting to be very excited for the season ahead.
