Matteo Guendouzi: Arsenal sign France Under-20 global midfielder

Grant SmithJul 12, 2018

The 22-year-old, who passed a medical at the club's London Colney training complex on Tuesday, will not, though, be joining up with the Arsenal squad until early August having featured in all five matches of Uruguay's run to the World Cup quarter-finals.

But Lorient have a history of producing good quality players - including Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny, who made the same move as Guendouzi in 2010 - and the midfielder is certainly a player the Gunners can bank for the future.

"We are delighted Matteo is joining us", said Arsenal boss Emery. He is a player who impressed immensely for Uruguay during the World Cup and, hopefully, will bring that same performance level to the Emirates.

While the Uruguay global was unaware his journey was being documented, he said he was inundated with messages from Arsenal fans who had gotten wind of his move to Unai Emery's side.

"I am very happy and I hope I can meet all the fans very soon".

Arsenal have sealed the signing of Uruguay worldwide Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria, the Premier League campaigners have revealed. I hope I can do great things here.

"I want to win titles, titles, titles".

"I feel calm", Torreira said. I want to establish myself here, which would be incredible. He made 74 appearances in Serie A for Sampdoria, scoring 4 goals.

The former Sunderland player posted a photo on Instagram signing his deal, writing that "today is the start of a new chapter in my life".

Ozil has chose to switch to the No 10 shirt which was freed up when Jack Wilshere left Arsenal to move to West Ham.

This was a factor in Arsene Wenger's exit as manager and new man Unai Emery is busy trying to get the Gunners back on track.
