  • Matteo Guendouzi

Arsenal completed the signing of Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient yesterday and the Frenchman took part in the training session right away after he signed a long-term deal with the North Londoners.

The situation alerted Arsenal with Sky Italia journalist Gianluza Di Marzio claiming earlier this month that the Gunners were in pole position to sign Gomes after Unai Emery had identified him as a summer target.

However, today the club has announced that they signed another central midfielder, Matteo Guendouzi.

The diminutive midfielder would also go on to impress during the World Cup in Russian Federation, but Arsenal won the race to sign the player.

How does it feel to join Arsenal?


Guendouzi told arsenal.com: "It's something I'm immensely proud of".

Guendouzi, a France U20 global, said that Arsenal is his dream club, one that he wanted to play for since childhood. It gives me great pride - it's incredible.

What do you hope to achieve at Arsenal?

Both Dortmund and Napoli would have been able to offer the player Champions League football, something Arsenal are unable to do, but he has chosen the Premier League.

'He also did not want to fill my head with a lot of things because I knew the World Cup was coming and that I was focused on that'. "Winning silverware, as I said, is very important to me and winning things here at Arsenal would be incredible".
