As we all now know Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Matteo Guendouzi, and aside from looking like a younger version of David Luiz, you may not know all too much about the guy. He’s 19 years of age which should be an instant sign of his potential from the word go, and he seems to be gearing up for a long and hopefully successful career in world football. While you often can’t judge a book by its cover, his demeanour alone is enough to suggest to us that he could do some big things with the Gunners.
According to Football.London, Arsenal have completed the signing of young French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient for a fee of around £7million. The youngster is reported to have signed a five-year deal with the North London club.
A video of the youngster signing a deal alongside Head of Recruitment Sven Mislintat and contract negotiator Huss Fahmy has emerged that has confirmed the deal.

Sven Mislintat built a reputation as a top talent spotter at previous club Dortmund. He would spot undiscovered stars and then they would become major stars at the German club.
Arsenal have done a lot of things throughout the course of the summer transfer window, but there’s one thing they categorically haven’t done: and that’s waste time. The Gunners have been ruthless in going after the kind of players that Unai Emery believes will improve the team, and while we won’t see the end result until the actual season kicks off, the early signs have been extremely positive. Now, according to Sky Sources, their latest transfer could be a matter of days away from being announced.
