Matteo Guendouzi is just 20 years old, yet he has already made an impression at Arsenal.
He signed from Ligue 1 club Lorient last season and ended up making 48 appearances during the 2018/19 campaign. After featuring an extra two times this term, he has now reached the milestone of 50 matches in a Gunners shirt.
He has impressed so far during this campaign, averaging a WhoScored rating of 7.46 across the first two fixtures of the new campaign. And it seems that Arsenal are looking to reward him with a new contract.
Could Gabriel Martinelli become Arsenal’s star striker in the not too distant future? Deluded Gooner thinks so in the video below…
According to The Daily Mail, the Gunners are set to offer the France U21 international an increase on his £40,000-a-week that will instead see him earn £70,000 every seven days.
And it seems that the north London outfit’s supporters back the deal, and want it be done as soon as possible. They have taken to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments below.
Get it done, showing signs that he’s going to be a major player & he likes it here, don’t do what the last regime did by allowing them to enter their final year & feel messed around.
A big season this year & clubs will come sniffing.

Get it done, this is just the kind of stuff that was sorely neglected in the past. We developed great players and then lost them so many times.

He has potential to be world class. Sign him up ??

Total no-brainer to do this. Hopefully we can wrap that up quickly.

Definitely do it. Not the finished article and also protects assets in terms of selling on if time comes. Also really like him as a player.
