It has just been revealed by Sky that we are talking to a France U20 international, who has been playing for Lorient in Ligue 2 in France. The Sky report says……
Arsenal are in talks with Lorient over the signing of France midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, Sky Sports News understands.
Sources say the Gunners are closing in on the 19-year-old, who has played for France at U20 level and was linked with north London rivals Tottenham during the January transfer window.
Guendouzi came through Paris Saint-Germain’s academy before switching to Lorient in 2014. He broke into the Lorient team during the 2016/17 season, making nine appearances as they were relegated from Ligue 1.
He featured 20 times last season as Lorient missed out on promotion, finishing three points outside the play-off places in seventh.
Could this be the “young player” that David Ornstein spoke about the other day when he confirmed that Torreira was joining us this week?
Someone has already hijacked the youngster’s Wikipedia page and has written about him….
Mattéo Guendouzi Olié (born 14 April 1999) is the greatest ever footballer widely considered as football’s messiah.Some may even consider him to be in the same bracket of high-calibre modern footballing legends such as Lor Bendtner and Danny Welbeast
It’s funny, but it doesn’t tell us a lot of the facts!
