Arsenal have crowned their Player of the Month for September and this month’s winner is the French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi.
After arriving at the Emirates from Lorient for just £8m, the 20-year-old has been a surprise package and his performances during September have helped him pick up the club award.
His performance against Manchester United, in which the Gunners earned a 1-1 draw, was the one game during the month that the Frenchman attracted huge praise, with former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas saying that he has a “big future” at Arsenal, per Metro. Per Mertesacker has also said that the youngster is expected to be a “future leader“.
Guendouzi has picked up two assists in his first eight Premier League games and played just the once in this season’s Europa League. He has also accumulated a passing accuracy of 87.4% which has been key to why the Gunners currently sit third in the Premier League table.
