Arsenal fans have mixed feelings about links to Matteo Guendouzi

Arsenal are close to sealing a move for Lorient youngster Matteo Guendouzi according to Sky Sports.

The 19-year-old has impressed for the Ligue 2 side in the two seasons he has featured there and had been previously linked with a move to Arsenal’s north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Guendouzi is valued at £2.25million on Transfermarkt and he would be Unai Emery’s fourth signing of the summer since joining Arsenal, after Berd Leno, Sokratis and Stephan Lichsteiner joined the Gunners.


Some people have compared the central midfielder’s playing style to other Arsenal target Adrien Rabiot who played under Emery at Paris Saint-Germain.

However, with Rabiot valued at £45million on Transfermarkt and Guendouzi potentially available for £7million, Arsenal would be saving rather a lot by opting for the talented teenager.

Arsenal fans have been reacting to the latest transfer transfer news on social media and here’s a selection of some of their best comments.
