Photos: Matteo Guendouzi all smiles after sealing Arsenal deal

Matteo Guendouzi became our fifth signing of the summer when he joined the club from Lorient on Wednesday.

Shortly after signing his contract, the France youth international took part in a photoshoot at London Colney and our club photographers sent back these pictures:


The 19-year-old started his career at the Paris Saint-Germain academy before joining Lorient’s academy in 2014.

Matteo made his first-team debut for Lorient aged 17 in October 2016 and went on to make 30 appearances. He is a France youth international, having represented them at under-18, under-19 and under-20 level.

Head coach Unai Emery said: “We are delighted Matteo is joining us. He is a talented young player and a lot of clubs were interested in him. He has big potential and gained good first-team experience last season with Lorient. He wants to learn and improve and will be an important part of our first-team squad.”

Matteo will wear the number 29 shirt – and you can get your ‘Guendouzi 29’ shirt here.

The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
