Arsenal signs Guendouzi from Lorient

Guendouzi joins Lucas Torreira who was signed from Sampdoria

Young FC Lorient midfielder Matteo Guendouzi joins Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira, Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, Borussia Dortmund center back Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Juventus defender Stephan Lichtsteiner as newly acquired Gunners in 2018.

The midfielder was excited to come to the Emirates Stadium this summer as he was seen overjoyed while singing the Arsenal contract, here's what he had to say about him coming to the Emirates.

The diminutive midfielder would also go on to impress during the World Cup in Russian Federation, but Arsenal won the race to sign the player.

However, Arsenal will now face stiff competition as TeamTalk are citing a report from TransferMarketWeb that claims Tottenham have joined their north London rivals in the race to sign Gomes.

Guendouzi told arsenal.com: "It's something I'm immensely proud of". It gives me great pride - it's incredible.

'It was hard for me to talk because receiving the call from a coach of such an important team generates many things.

What do you hope to achieve at Arsenal?

Arsenal will be looking to at least break back into the top four next season as they look to bound back from their disappointing trophyless campaign under Arsene Wenger last season.

"With pressure I feel fine, but with pressure on myself, I don't". A lot of great players have played here. "Winning silverware, as I said, is very important to me and winning things here at Arsenal would be incredible".
