Arsenal have completed the signing of Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient, as video footage of him signing his contract confirms.
The 19 year old emerged as a surprise target for the Gunners over the weekend, and was, according to reports, convinced to sign by new head coach Unai Emery.
Guendouzi, a deep lying midfielder, made 21 appearances for his club last season in all competitions, and arrives at Arsenal as a player for the future.
With Europa League and cup competitions providing plenty of opportunities next season, he should get plenty of chances.
We wait for official confirmation from the club itself, including a bit more detail, but the signing appears to be done and dusted.
