Arsenal’s summer signing Matteo Guendouzi scored his first goal for the club in last night’s Europa League win over Qarabag.
The 19-year-old midfielder joined the Gunners from Lorient in a deal worth a reported £7m and has probably had more playing time than most Arsenal fans expected at that stage. He has now marked a promising start to his career with the north Londoners by opening his goalscoring account.
Guendouzi bagged the third goal in a 0-3 win in Azerbaijan last night. He scored with a low drive from just inside the penalty area.
Alexandre Lacazette provided the assist, and got a thank you when Guendouzi reacted to his goal on social media.
He wrote: “Excellent victory in @europaleague! So happy to have scored my first goal under my new colors @arsenal 🔴⚪️Thank you Laca 👊🏽.”
