Arsenal have signed 19-year-old Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient for an undisclosed fee.

The French midfielder joins Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papostoupolos and Lucas Torreira to become Unai Emery’s fifth signing as Gunners boss.

Guendouzi began his career in PSG’s youth setup before moving to Lorient in 2014.

Two years later, he made his first team debut for the club at just 17 and has represented his country as an under-18, under-19 and under-20.

He will wear number 29 at the Emirates next season.

And he has spoken out on how joining Arsenal in the Premier League is a dream come true.

“It gives me great pride – it’s incredible. I hope I can do great things here.

“It doesn’t get any better than coming to a club like this, with so much history, like Arsenal. I’m hugely proud.

“My hope is to become a top player here at Arsenal. A lot of great players have played here.

“I want to become part of the club’s history and to achieve great things here. I want to win titles, titles, titles

“I want to establish myself here, which would be amazing. Winning silverware, as I said, is very important to me and winning things here at Arsenal would be incredible.”

Guendouzi posed for a series of photos on Wednesday as Arsenal supporters caught first glimpse of their new signing, who bears a striking resemblance to Chelsea’s David Luiz.
